Pedestrian Safety at the New East Side Library

I met with city staff today along with Councilmember Clark to discuss safety measures for the east side library (opening early this summer!).

After school has let out, significant striping and lane changes will be installed to make entering and exiting both the library and Ridge Lake Boulevard easier and safer. Additionally, the speed limit from 36th Ave to the library will be dropped from the current 50 mph to 40 mph, and a street lamp will be requested from OG&E to be installed at the corner of the library and Alameda to continually light the intersection for pedestrian safety.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this project! I'm glad we will have these measures in place before the library opens.
