In response to an accident on January 23rd where a 16-year-old was struck by a vehicle on Valley Road, ROSELLE PARK పోలీస్ శాఖ (RPPD) is working on solutions to make the area safer.

At the Feburary 1st Mayor & కౌన్సిల్ సమావేశం, RPPD Police Chief Paul W. Morrison spoke of the accident and subsequent measures.

We have been assessing the roadway in question and . . . we have already spoken with [PSEG representative] జో Signorello, concerning additional lighting in the area,” ముఖ్యమంత్రి మొర్రిసన్ చెప్పారు, “It’s a dark area at night. We’re going to add extra signage. We’ll have ‘Slowsigns as you approach that curve. కూడా, I would like to discuss with Public Safety possible pedestrian walks in that area. There’s no pedestrian walkways in that area to keep the people off of the street. Our records indicate that there’s never been a pedestrian struck at that location, అయితే, one pedestrian is one too many. So we’re going to work and do whatever we can do to make that a safer intersection.

Councilman-At-Large Joseph DeIorio added that the proposed walkway was, in his research, owned by the state. అతను వ్యాఖ్యానించాడు, “We have to figure out how to coordinate that effort. I was speaking with Councilman Shipley about a couple of ideas that some of the neighbors talked about with that area. It might incorporate sidewalk. It might incorporate some additional pedestrian-friendly measures and potientially to hopefully to get some grant money too.

The councilman asked to see if the process for lighting could be expedited.

Chief Morrison added that there is also the potential to have solar signsmuch like the flashing signs by the train stationin the area to make drivers aware of spped and/or curve in the roadway.

When reached for more information, ముఖ్యమంత్రి మొర్రిసన్ పేర్కొంది, “We are hopeful that the County Traffic Division will have the Valley Road traffic study in place by next week and the data from that study should be complied within 30 రోజుల . . . The pedestrian walkway that is being recommended will most likely be a budgetary item. పిఎస్ఇ&G will also be moving forward with installing larger wattage street bulbs in the existing street lights.
