BOND PROJECT UPDATE: Town Installs New Crosswalk Signs Near Park and Greenway Access Point
The Town has recently installed new pedestrian crosswalk signs at Aversboro and Buffaloe roads—by the entrance to White Deer Park—and on Timber Drive near Buckingham Road and the South Garner Greenway connection to Timber. Pedestrians wanting to cross the street can press a button on the signpost and warning lights on the signs will flash.
The signs do not eliminate the need to stop and look both ways before safely crossing the street, but they should help to make motorists more aware of pedestrians seeking to enter the crosswalks.
The signs were paid for with Street and Sidewalk Bonds from the 2013 Garner Bond Program.
