Council denies crosswalk

Because of concerns about safety, a crosswalk will not be added at the intersection of Rosedale Avenue and Main Street.

Because of concerns about safety, a crosswalk will not be added at the intersection of Rosedale Avenue and Main Street.

Mayor Janice Perrino said the crosswalk had been requested to provide quick and easy access from Main Street to the medical building across Rosedale Avenue.

While the intersection looks like a natural place for a crosswalk, Perrino said it is not a safe location.

“It looks like it should be obvious, but it’s not,” she said. “There’s a lot of activity at that corner.”

The crosswalks in place are at Rosedale Avenue and Wharton Street and at Rosedale Avenue and Angus Street.

Each of these crosswalks is around one block from the intersection of Rosedale Avenue and Main Street.

Perrino said traffic patterns at Main Street would have to be changed if a crosswalk would have been permitted.

“We didn’t feel that was a good option for us,” she said.
