The wooden arch bridge spanning VT 127 links Ethan Allen Homestead to the neighborhoods and Ethan Allen Park on the other side. It has been blocked off with chainlink fence and not maintained for several years. From what I have read, over $250,000 was spent to build this structure in the 1980's. Considering it's aesthetic and actual value, it should be maintained.
A safe pedestrian detour would be extremely easy to design and implement here. Instead a complete blockage has been maintained for weeks. There is currently no signage whatsoever at the nearby corners. Children are literally squeezing between the construction dumpster and Rte. 7 traffic. Public Works, where are you on this?
Bike lanes on both sides from North St all the way to Plattsburg are totally buried, again. Please plow to the curb using the sidewalk plow. The section with no green belt needs extra attention and potentially the small sidewalk snowblower.
Please consider installing a rapid flashing beacon at the crosswalk intersection at Bilodeau Ct off of East Avenue up to the hospital. This route is heavily utilized by public school children, hospital employees, and neighbors. The traffic on East Ave is fast and voluminous. A rapid flashing beacon is needed to alert motorists of pedestrians and will also be a permanent replacement to the pedestrian caution sign that is currently on East Ave. As a resident of Bilodeau, I was surprised to see a new rapid flashing beacon at Fletcher Place off of Colchester Ave. I think the area along East Ave also needs this type of treatment for safety concerns. Thanks for considering!!!
Wrong way cyclist on North Ave. Witnessed a car attempting to turn left on North Ave slam on their brakes and almost get rear ended due to a cyclist traveling the wrong way. Both traveling North. Why cant anything be done?
