In the first week of October MoreThanTheCurve.com reported that the Borough of Conshohocken was reviewing a proposal to paint lanes and parking spaces on West 6th Avenue.
The proposal is back on the agenda of a meeting of Borough Council. This time it is to consider approving the proposal. The meeting is Wednesday, October 17th at 7:00 p.m. at Borough Hall at West 4th Avenue and Fayette Street.
Last year residents of West 6th Avenue voiced concerns about the volume and speed of traffic on the street. West 6th Avenue is one of two direct two-way links between Colwell Lane and Fayette Street. Residents stated that they were afraid to walk across the street during certain hours and back out of their driveways.
Then Mayor Bob Frost approved emergency stop signs at the three way intersection of West 6th Avenue and Freedley Street, which were eventually made permanent.
This additional step of painting lanes will help keep traffic in the center of West 6th Avenue, which is very wide at the Colwell Lane end.
More to come.
