Update: Full council to take up St. Adelaide pedestrian light safety issue

22 Feb

By Eye On Peabody

Just a quick update on an earlier story here: The Peabody City Council Public Safety Subcommittee last night voted to recommend that the full council commission a study for installing a pedestrian light in front of St. Adelaide Church at the spot where an elderly pedestrian was struck and killed by a car on Jan. 27.

It was another step in the process of making the Lowell Street crossing safer for those attending mass and other events at the church. To read full details on last night’s subcommittee meeting, please click here.

    We’re going to spend $50,000 to $90,000 installing a light that will get used a total of about 30 minutes once a week?

    I think a much more effective way to handle this is with a crossing guard. Big yellow vest + big red stop sign = problem solved.

    OG says…after thinking about this issue and after having driven up and down the street going past the church a few times now I think that better signage prior to the church zone in each direction combined with a crossing guard during mass times would be an effective safety solution…
