Thanks to everyone who came out on another beautiful Saturday morning for our 2nd Walking Tour in Fern Hill!
Special thanks for attending & sharing their time & knowledge:
- Jennifer Kammerzell, Principal Engineer for the Public Works Department
- Sarneshea Evans, Program Director for the Green Schoolyard project
We learned a lot along the way about sidewalks, speed studies, traffic circles, & road repair. Information was shared about upcoming Safe Routes to School projects in this area like Baker Middle School being up next for improvements, and solutions to the speeding on E 84th St using narrowing techniques such as going from 4 lanes to 2 lanes & the addition of a bike lane were discussed. It may seem counter-intuitive, but research has shown lane narrowing helps move traffic with 33% less speeding.
Our gratitude, as always, to our local S 38th St & S G St Starbucks for supporting the South End community by providing tea for these events!
Hope to see you on our next Walking Tour in the Stafford area on April 9. Stay tuned for details! Want to receive Walking Tour updates? Sign up below 🙂
