Handicapped cutouts lacking in downtown

While walking downtown, I can't help but notice the lack of cutouts for handicapped accessibility.

Yes, they are there at each corner of the newly finished roads, but blocks are long, and it's a long way to wheel a chair or walker if you're parked in the middle of the block.

It's odd that the cutouts are lacking in front of Commerce Towers, where patients visit all day, and in front of the churches on Peoria. There were cutouts before the road was torn up, at least one for each church.  

Please, don't forget about those who do not walk, or do not walk well.
