Pedestrian Crossings on Somerville Avenue
posted at 9/8/2009 1:23 PM EDT
I know a lot of money is going into the reconstruction of Som. Ave. between Union and Porter but I can't for the life of me understand the pedestrian crossings. Take for example, the crossing at approx. 340 Som Ave outside the Credit Union. Where the crossing meets the sidewalk the "ramp" for wheelchairs and buggies is off by a deozen feet or so. So in theory, a person pushing a child in a buggy would have to step out of the crosswalk in order to safely mount the pavement on the far side.
Is this a temporary solution or a case of two contractors not in discussion with each other?
