Town council will receive a request tonight from Robert Moore School to make certain changes to traffic signage during the school year.
The school is asking that signage on the 700 bock of Crowe Avenue, as well as at the intersection of the 200 block of Fourth Street East and Armit Avenue, be changed “to assist in developing a safer environment for student arrival and dismissal during the school year.”
The signage requests include:
•having “No Stopping” signs on the east side of the 700 block of Crowe Avenue between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday to Friday;
•having “10 Minute Stopping” signs on the west side of the 700 block of Crowe Avenue between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday to Friday;
•having “No Bus Access” signs on the 700 block of Crowe Avenue;
•having “Stop” signs at the intersection of Crowe Avenue and Third Street East; and
•having additional “Stop” signs at the northwest and southeast corners of Armit Avenue and Fourth Street East to create a four-way stop.
Robert Moore and the local public school board also are looking at a number of measures to assist pedestrian safety and student pick-up and drop-off traffic.
These include the installation of hard surface walkways leading from the school to Second Street East, parent pull-in bays on the west side of Crowe Avenue between Second and Fourth Street East, and the separation of bus traffic from pedestrian and caregiver traffic.
