Photos from Site Visit
- Install speed board and set traffic signals for 25mph as has been done on Beacon Street
- Consider mid-block crosswalk w/ RRFB or HAWK signal near Remy's / Baseball Tavern; many new residential buildings in area & long blocks with increased pedestrian activity require more safe crossings of this wide road
- Road diet to narrow road and slow vehicles while allowing for safer crossings and turn movements
- Protected bicycle lanes
