Community leaders who have been sounding concerns about the high rates of speed on Millwood Avenue may be getting relief after a fourth pedestrian was struck and killed in February.
Representative Seth Rose said he is following up on concerns from neighbors and is engaging local resources and assistance from the state Department of Transportation to look at and propose ways to reduce traffic speeds and improve pedestrian safety.
That traffic study should be completed in April, and Rose said he is eager to see what proposals can be enacted immediately. "The reality is this stretch of road sounds like an interstate, and it feels very dangerous like one too," Rose said.
