Excellent point. I agree. We can consider asking Eric (1) whether
pedestrian crossing signals are part of the project (or just look at the
plans ourselves to find out), and if so, (3) what the intervals will be.

The crossing times at other intersections are so quick that an elderly--

If this is what is meant by shortened times it is an issue

We have not discussed the project formally from a WSMAC perspective. The
history is that this was originally part of the 2010 William Clarke
redesign, but they ran out money.
My personal feeling is that if this project will create “a tighter
intersection, shortening pedestrian crossing times”, per the DOT project
engineer, that should be an improvement for non-motorized users as well as
motorists. But I’m not speaking for the committee.

Are you referring to the $ 3.2 M Multi Intersection Project at the Western
side of Westbrook ?
I will have to check with Kim, Lee, John and a couple others.
I am a bit concerned with the comments of the new WPD Chief. The Traffic
Back-up goes back to The Spring Street - WCD - Main Street Intersection -
not just to Mechanic Street. I would like to see the Proposed New Multi
Story- Multi Use Building on the Municipal Parking Lot off Mechanic Street
delayed until the Western Intersection Project is completed. But I'm just
1 Voice squeeking !
Do You have any Thoughts or Suggestions on the Multi - Intersection
Construction Project for the Western side of the City ?
