1) What the City is doing: The City has recently installed pedestrian crosswalks throughout the Old Town area. We installed a pilot project at Mount Erie School (41st Street) which includes pedestrian activated, solar-powered crosswalk warning lights. We installed solar-powered crosswalk lights in all school zones and permanently-mounted traffic radars to clock and display the speed of cars moving through the crosswalk. You can call City engineers at 360-293-1920 for further information. The City also has a policy for all city employees driving city vehicles to stop for pedestrians whenever possible.
2) What you can do: You can also make a difference by stopping for pedestrians in town and letting them cross. We can all make our streets safer for pedestrians if we are courteous drivers.
