In response to a story SaultOnline published on the soon to be obstructed stop sign at Gore and Albert street, the city has given SaultOnline a statement on the plan.
Tessa Vecchio, the communications manager for the city advised that they are aware of the situation.
“Public Works is taking precautionary measures to save the tree while still maintaining the visibility of the stop sign,” said Vecchio. “The tree’s branches will be trimmed in the Spring and the flashing light will be adjusted to create enough visibility.”
Another issue which was brought to their attention was the lines in the newly minted section of Northern Avenue. It has been redesigned and is now one lane in each direction with bike lanes added.
Larry Girardi, Deputy CAO, Public Works and Engineering has said “Northern Avenue is a priority and will be painted as soon as weather permits. Temperatures will have to warm up before paint can be applied.”
