As discussed at last night's meeting of the Concerned Citizens of First Street -
A petition is circulating to close First Street for the duration of the First Street Tunnel work there. Street closure would address the following safety issues:
- · Pedestrians sharing space with the car lane on the west side of First Street;
- · Eliminate the need to remove tree boxes and parking on First between U & W;
- · Address the issue of construction vehicles sharing space with vehicles at the intersection of First & V; as well as,
- · Expedite the completion of the project.
