Residents Alerted to Crosswalk System Change
Posted: January 14, 2020
Concerns voiced by residents regarding pedestrian safety at the corner of Maitland Drive and Hampton Ridge prompted a thorough investigation by the City Transportation and Operations Services Department. Their findings resulted in the directive to change the current crosswalk system to one often used as a mid-block crossing - similar to that found at the intersection of Sidney Street and Parkdale Street.
City staff will install signage to warn motorists about the change but as with all new traffic system installations, extreme caution is advised.
“The change has been implemented to improve pedestrian safety,” stated Joe Reid, General Manager, Transportation and Operations Services. “We ask that motorists and pedestrians alike heed the new signage and exercise caution.”
