Brian McHattie's response:

Hi Adrian,

I share your serious concern for the state of Queen Street. The speed of traffic makes for very unsafe conditions. The near fatal injury this week at Main St, preceded by a similar injury a month ago at Herkimer cries out for a strong response by the City.

Councillor Farr and I have met with our Traffic Department and will be shortly be announcing several short-term improvements but the speed issues on this one-way street are systemic. Queen Street must be seriously considered for two-way or Complete Street treatment before any other serious pedestrian injuries or even deaths occur.

I am certainly prepared and eager to work with you and other citizens on this issue in the days ahead.

Thanks, Brian
