Maiden Ln is being repaved, which would be a good time to establish slow driving on the street, especially at the Academy Green. In one direction, traffic enters from a sop sign... there is a problem however: traffic entering from Albany Avenue has a sloping entrance that encourages speed, and enter Albany, that same curve and a Yield sign, often treated as a Merge: it should be a stop. It crosses a 5 lane wide pedestrian crossing, pedestrians encountering speed from both directions...
1) that Yield should be a Stop
2) the traffic entrances should be squared off for safety, both for the drivers and pedestrians... drivers are encouraged to keep up speed and attempt to merge, drawing their attention over their left shoulder, away from the pedestrian crossing, and away from the parked cars and pedestrians along Maiden Lane. Attention, please: Mike Schupp, DPW. Contact me directly if you wish.
