#NewtownPA Public Works Department to Implement Additional Newtown-Yardley Road Pedestrian Safety Measures | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

Several residents of Newtown Walk are concerned about pedestrian safety at the intersection of Tara Boulevard and Newtown-Yardley Rd. On September 12, 2022, Newtown Township Manager Micah Lewis notified supervisors of additional safety improvements to this crosswalk, which allows residents access to the Newtown Township Trail, Newtown Borough, and points East along Newtown-Yardley Road

 

The new safety measures include:

 

  • Extension of the center median further west on Newtown Yardley Road and to use flexible reflective delineators to create a refuge island in the center of the road.
  • Installation of additional “Pedestrian Crossing Ahead” signage in both the east & westbound lanes.
  • Adding white pavement markings leading up to the crosswalk in the east & westbound lanes reading "PED-XING"

 

The work will be completed in-house by the Public Works Department once the materials are received.

 

Will this satisfy the residents who have concerns? More…
