WATCH: Vernon residents rally in support of traffic calming
Vernon – Carrying signs with slogans like ‘protect our children’ a group of Vernon residents rallied Tuesday morning in support of a proposal revamp of 25th Street.
The possible changes include adding more sidewalks and installing medians and islands that would prevent through traffic and block left turns at three intersections.
The proposed upgrades aimed at making the road safer for pedestrians and cyclists.
However, the new design has been controversial with some local residents concerned it will make it harder to get in or out of their neighborhood.
Demonstrators planning to be out again Wednesday morning voicing their support.
