The pedestrian crossing by Avery Bus Stop, located on SCP-4XXX.



Special Containment Procedures:

Under an agreement with PennDOT1, SCP-4XXX is to be indefinitely closed off under the guise of road construction, and any personnel researching on SCP-4XXX will be provided with temporary PennDOT employee IDs and apparel. All personnel are advised to be cautious and to follow all standard road safety procedures; any large transport or personal vehicles are prohibited in the vicinity of SCP-4XXX. Jurisdiction of SCP-4XXX will fall under the local Site-198 and MTF Rho-4 ("Crossing Guard"); only Level 2 personnel and above are allowed access.


Description:

SCP-4XXX is an approximately 2.5km long stretch of Trellis Street in the city of Vannenburg, Pennsylvania. The anomalous effects of SCP-4XXX manifest whenever a pedestrian attempts to cross 4XXX without having at least looked to the right to check for approaching incoming traffic. When the pedestrian (designated SCP-4XXX-A) reaches the middle of the road, they will be struck by a large vehicle. This incident (designated SCP-4XXX-1) will usually result in fatal injuries to SCP-4XXX-A. The striking vehicle is never present in the area near the location of SCP-4XXX-1; immediately before the incident, the vehicle will always materialize 60 meters away from the location of collision. This effect may manifest anywhere along SCP-4XXX's length.


Item History:

SCP-4XXX was brought to the Foundation's attention on 4/22/2019, when four fatal pedestrian hits occurred over the span of the previous 5 days. Afterward, SCP-4XXX's anomalous properties were confirmed with the death of a Rho-4 agent involved with the initial containment effort and through subsequent testing.

It is unsure whether or not SCP-4XXX's anomalous effect is connected to a recent partial repaving of Trellis Street completed on 4/17 by the country-wide company Caleb-Maven Paving. The area paved correlates to the length of SCP-4XXX; research into Caleb-Maven Paving (designated GoI-1229) is currently underway.


Addendum 01: SCP-4XXX Update

On 5/21/2019, several more possible SCP-4XXX-like roads, also paved by Caleb-Maven Paving, have been located but at this moment. Although they have not been confirmed to be anomalous
