In order to alleviate traffic issues near Lester School, stop signs will be installed at the intersection of Lincoln Avenue and Cumnor Road on Wednesday, December 10 .
In November 2008, the Village Council approved an ordinance that allowed Lincoln Avenue between Fairview Avenue and Cumnor Road to become a one-way street between the hours of 8 and 9 a.m. and 2 and 3 p.m. These changes were enacted upon the Transportation and Parking Commission’s recommendation to restrict traffic during these hours.
As part of the review process, staff indicated that once the one-way changes went into effect, the area would be monitored and evaluated. Staff has since determined that the intersection of Lincoln Avenue and Cumnor Road meets the standards for the installation of stop signs.
The Village Manager has temporarily approved this action, and the intersection change will be presented to the Village Council in the following weeks.
