New Crosswalks on Garber

The Crestwood Public Works Department has started construction on two new crosswalks on Garber Road. They will be near cross streets of Tea Rose and Buxton.

At a meeting earlier this year, the Public Works Board approved adding these crosswalks to provide safe crossing for pedestrians, specifically children walking to/from Long Elementary school.

A secondary purpose is to provide natural "traffic calming" along Garber, slowing drivers as they approach. As a connector road, drivers tend to exceed the posted 25 MPH speed limit. This road has a few "blind spots" due to the hill, so care was taken to ensure the new crosswalks will be located with maximum visibility to oncoming drivers.
