Description

The roadway entrance to Franklin Ave from Walnut Lane has been deliberately narrowed in recent months with mini-curbs: a very unusual roadway condition. While I presume there must have been some well-intended reason for doing this, I consider it potentially dangerous. Cars going north on Walnut, turning right into Franklin, face the following:
--a narrow side road to be entered
--a surprising and unexpected curb on the corner, requiring a sudden swerve to the left
--oncoming traffic coming from the east on Franklin, which is often invisible (due to large SUV's often parked too close to that very corner)
Potential result: head-on collision.
Please re-examine this corner and consider whether the curb is a good idea.
