Crosswalk: Mecaslin and 16th Street
We as Atlantic Station residents are fully aware of the need for a crosswalk between Mecaslin and 16th Street.
Furthermore, let this be a petition for all of 16th Street, so we, as the Atlantic Station community and our guests, will remain safe and visible in our neighborhood.
This is a glaring hazard.
Let's unite to make this happen.
1) It is located on an incline, leading to poor visibility for motorists
2) Parking is allowed in too close of proximity, in relation to the stop sign on Mecaslin St.
-Further limiting visibility
2) Mecaslin St. NW is a through street. It is a densely populated area making it a frequently traveled area.
3)Accidents and near accidents have repeatedly occurred at this intersection, due to lack of visibility.
4) Additionally a new bus stop has been established on 16th Street NW for
Atlantic Station's Free Shuttle, which furthers the need for a crosswalk
