Safety Issues East 26th St & 11th Ave So. Intersection

BY CONCERNED RESIDENTS

Many residents have expressed safety concerns when crossing at the intersection of East 26th Street & 11th Avenue South north of Stewart Park Soccer Field.

We have seen some major changes to East 26th Street. There is now a Bike Lane and a ‘buffer zone” that separates the Bike Lane from the two lanes of traffic.

However, we still question whether these measures have actually reduced the risk of crossing at this intersection.  We still do not see adequate signage to alert drivers approaching on East 26th Street, that there is a School Crossing Ahead, Playground Ahead, or Pedestrian Crossing Ahead.

Some of us have also observed that by separating the Bike Lane from the Traffic Lanes, that cars can now actually travel faster.
