Poplar Street Speed Study
The Fairmount neighborhood has many smaller side streets emptying onto Poplar Street, a busy thoroughfare for cars excessively speeding, making exiting our streets dangerous. There are also cars that park on corners, adding to the danger because seeing around them is difficult. A speed study has been requested, which hopefully will include a survey from 30th St to Corinthian, ticket #891852, in the hope that speed bumps or stop signs will be incorporated in the near future. We are asking the Philadelphia Streets Dept to survey our neighborhood to determine the best way to address our concerns. Thank you for bringing this petition to the attention of the Chief Traffic Engineer for Philadelphia.
