Raised Crosswalks at Forest and Lake Avenues
The Raised Crosswalks at Forest Avenue and Lake Avenue will soon be replaced with lower profile Raised Crosswalks, identical to those found on 63rd Avenue near St Ambrose and Spellman School. The contractor mistakenly installed the current Raised Crosswalks to county standards, instead of the profile requested by Cheverly.
The Town Council agreed over two years ago to implement Raised Crosswalks in heavy traffic areas, when roads are being re-paved, to improve pedestrian safety. This policy was implemented in response to the two most common citizen complaints; speeding and failure to stop at stop signs.
