Letter to the Editor:Red Crosswalks In Somerville How Ridiculous?

Dear Billy T and Somerville Speakup Line,

This is what they are doing tonight on Broadway. This looks so stupid, who’s idea was this?

Maybe they are going to add a little green and it’s just for the Xmas season, LOL.

I think they should think about the repaving of Broadway from at least Central Street to McGrath Hwy. The condition of this stretch of Broadway is terrible. They started to work on it a while back but never finished.

  1. I think they r fine.. the color of traffic signs… it might help drivers be more aware of crosswalks & people in them.

  2. If they are smooth instead of those brick ones the elderly keep tripping on then it’s a plus. The color must be some leftover paint they had from something. Certainly glow in the dark neon green would have been more subtle.

    1. This is located on Broadway between Bartlett and Partridge. This section is notorious for close-calls between pedestrians and cars and is absolutely necessary to make the crosswalk visible to drivers especially at night.
