Description

The T-intersection at 41st and Gilbert is very dangerous. There is only one crosswalk across 41st on the east side of the intersection (with no stop sign), cars tend to drive very fast going up and down the hill. There is a preschool at the corner, and parents and kids often cross 41st on the side without the crosswalk because of the limited parking for drop off and pick up on Gilbert, so parents often park in the angled parking spots on 41st. There is minimal signage regarding the school zone on the west side of the intersection, so cars are unaware to slow down. Additionally, the visibility going east on 41st is limited because of the hill, so cars often cannot see pedestrians in the street until they are very close. It is an accident waiting to happen.

I would like to request improved traffic control measures to address these dangerous conditions, such as upgraded crosswalk striping, pedestrian crossing warning signage, pavement extensions, stop signs on the east and west sides of the intersection along 41st, and/or another crosswalk on the west side of the intersection.
