Lakeside’s Pedestrian Signal Almost Ready


Share post:

This torn-up section of  sidewalk on Lakeside near Hillside may mean some short-term inconvenience for pedestrians. But it will soon be good news: The location of a pedestrian-activated traffic signal to help those trying to cross Lakeside, which Councilman Jay Sniatkowski has compared to a very dangerous game of chicken. (The town is “close” to convincing the county to reduce the speed limit on Lakeside, says Town Manager Joseph Martin.) The new signal, which will remain green for cars on Lakeside until activated by pedestrians, was purposely designed mid-block to discourage cut-through traffic in the Forest section. Martin says it should be ready by Labor Day.
