Very excited about these improvements, especially after many years of pedestrian activism in the Kirkendall neighbourhood and the community being told that our concerns about speeding cars did not warrant these kinds of interventions. Herkimer Raceway indeed: we have spent many summer evenings on our front porch watching people blaze past the stop sign at Herkimer and Kent without stopping, despite the fact that this is a heavily used route for people walking to the HAAA grounds. That more people have not been hurt is a miracle. Lesson: persistence and direct citizen action gets the goods. ps: Slightly disappointed that the Herkimer and Locke bump out isn't wider... Ryan, do you know why this is?
