Poulsbo pedestrians reach a crossroad
Public Works Committee to hear about road-crossing dangers at 5 p.m.
Why didnt the Poulsbo resident cross the road?
Citizens are headed to the Public Works committee meeting tonight to answer that riddle and propose a four-way stop sign at the intersection of Front Street, Fourth Avenue, Fjord Drive and Hostmark Street, where they say road-crossing is a dangerous task.
Created by resident Michael Paxhia, an e-mail account specifically for the issue Stop4us@gmail.com has received several tales of crosswalk woes.
Pedestrians, runners and cyclists call the intersection a problem area and cause for safety anxiety, as they wrote cars dont stop at the crosswalk and often dont adhere to Front Streets 15 mph speed limit.
The city has discussed the issue at several previous committee meetings.
Flyers near the area urge residents to attend and make Poulsbo a safer place for everyone to walk and drive.
The meeting will be at Poulsbos City Hall. For information, call (360) 779-3901.
