Residents Want Speeding Addressed

Accident at Water and Gordon St

Groups of residents have asked for the city to address speeding. This photo is from a recent accident at the corner of Water and Gordon St. People speed down both Gordon and Water St. This corner is an area of heavy pedestrian traffic and there have been accidents here. A group of Water st residents had petitioned for the council to pass speed bumps and the council passed it, but to date no speed bumps have been used by the city to address speeding.

Another group of residents recently petitioned for speeding solutions on Rt 35. A discussion at the council revealed that the city has no plan to build a pedestrian overpass over Rt 35 by the high school for students and teachers to safely cross the street. The intersection near the high school on Rt 35 recently had a pedestrian casualty.
