Waitsfield's crosswalks have a temporary new look!
In an effort to increase pedestrian safety in Waitsfield Village and Irasville, the Town of Waitsfield and the Mad River Valley Planning District worked with Local Motion and the Vermont Department of Transportation to place in-street signs at the Waitsfield Elementary School, Carroll Rd., and Irasville crosswalks.
In-street crosswalk signs are effective tools to enhance awareness of and yielding to pedestrian crossings, and help to remind motorists of local laws. These signs are on loan (at no cost!) from Local Motion for this one-month demonstration project. The signs are temporary and as such are vulnerable to being hit and moved. Permanent in-street crosswalk signs would be mounted to the street, as opposed to having portable rubber bases.

We want to know what you think!
Your input is needed to help the Town of Waitsfield determine the best options for pedestrian safety improvements.
