I had to do this for years crossing a four-lane highway to get to work
because there was no pedestrian-activatable signal at the corner. I had the
choice of brazening it out with the traffic or traveling on the other side
of the street from a bus stop further up and traveling through an underpass
to get to the side of the corner I wanted with the traffic two inches away
from me.
Eventually, a pedestrian-activated signal was installed.

Yes, it is called a "forced crossing" i think.  It does work, but 
takes a little faith!
