YouTube: New Skerry and Bridge Street Signal
User Jared R gives us a look at the crossing signal that's been in the spotlight this week.
Earlier this week Ward 2 Councilor Mike Sosnowski told the School Committee he's in a battle with MassDOT over a new traffic signal at Skerry and Bridge Street that he says could put pedestrians at risk.
The signal, located in close proximity to the Carlton School meets standards, according to the state.
Sosnowski said he's concerned the new signal could cause some confusion, especially for the elementary-aged children in the area. Learn more about the issue here.
User Jared R, who has been working to improve the situation in the Bridge Street neighborhood was kind enough to shoot a video of the crossing.
What do you think of it? Is it confusing? Does it have you concerned about the safety of children in the area.
Thanks for your contribution, Jared.
