For Nashua student walkers, commute may soon be safer
This week, the aldermanic Committee on Infrastructure recommended that three flashing speed limit signs be placed within three separate school zones throughout the community.
Sponsored by Alderman Ken Siegel of Ward 9, the proposal is expected to cost about $30,000 for the purchase and installation of the three signs.
Siegel, who said there were several roadblocks in getting the proposal drafted, said the initiative has been a high priority for him.
Alderman David Deane, president of the Board of Aldermen, agreed that the flashing speed limit signs are highly effective.
“It only makes sense that we have enough signage on that street,” she said.
Last month, city officials accepted a federal grant to make adjustments to the pedestrian infrastructure around Charlotte Avenue Elementary School, at which time concerns were raised about walking routes around other city schools as well.
