Understood, John. I was at Sportsman's Hardware when two Women and a
Daughter of one of them ? 8 or 9 , watched for the traffic to stop back
at the Mechanic Street Lights and watched for a Gap Westbound to cross WCD
at Central Street where the faded Universal Do Not Cross Signs are and the
reverse on their return across WCD when I came out of the Hardware Store
and saw the same trio coming back across. Most take the time to use the
Crosswalk controls at WCD and Mechanic Street but a LOT MORE cross at
That is NOT A GOOD EXAMPLE TO SET FOR A YOUNG GIRL.

The attached photo, from Thursday afternoon, September 10, 2020, is
looking across WCD from the Sportsman's Hardware Store.
The RED Universal DO NOT CROSS SYMBOL on the walking Pedestrian Sign is
fading fast. It is actually two signs back to back. The black Arrow
To try to convince people NOT TO CROSS THE 4 LANES OF WCD WHERE CENTRAL
STREET NOW ENDS IN FRONT OF SPORTSMAN'S HARDWARE STORE AND
SIGN POINTS TO THE PEDESTRIAN PUSHBUTTON ACTIVATED CONTROLS FOR THE
MARKED CROSSWALK AT THE TRAFFIC SIGNAL CONTROLLED 4 WAY INTERSECTION FOR
WCD and MECHANIC STREET.
ARE THERE ANY PLANS TO REPLACE THE FADING SIGNS WITH SHINY NEW ONES?
