to safety concerns about crossing TrailMark Parkway, the Safety
Committee has recommended to the Board that additional crosswalks be
installed. The Safety Committee worked with the City of Littleton to
investigate areas where pedestrians are already crossing the street, but
where there is no crosswalk. The goal in adding additional crosswalks
is to increase awareness of these pedestrian crossings. The locations of
the crosswalks were chosen so as to
allow each “section” of our community to safely cross TrailMark Parkway
to access our beautiful parks and trails.
City of Littleton will fully fund the project and will be out painting
in late August or early September. Please see the map
locations of the existing and new crosswalks and signs.
Regarding the “double” crosswalks at S Dover and Everett: The Safety
Committee met with SSPRD and asked about the possibility of removing the
“horseshoe” shaped pathways that create two pathways to the road for
crossing, but South Suburban denied that request stating that folks
would walk there anyway and mat down the landscape such that we would
likely be asking them to put the “horseshoe” walkways back in a few
years. Though it may seem strange to have two crossings so close
together, these second crossings are the best safety measure given the
location of the paths where folks are already crossing. There will only
be one sign in each direction for these crossings (rather than one sign
for each crosswalk) in these cases.
