Pedestrian Alert Signs, But No Crosswalks

Ever noticed the signs on Bridgeport Avenue, but the lack of crosswalks?

I was driving down Bridgeport Avenue on Tuesday, as I do on a nearly daily basis, and noticed something peculiar at 350 -- the plaza with Planet Pizza and Blue Lotus Nail Spa.

There is absolutely signage for pedestrians, but no crosswalks or sidewalks anywhere near this area. Have you ever noticed this before? Am I the only one who finds it odd?

"They also have no sidewalks on this main artery. With the frequent busstops, etc, there needs to be a safe walking route from downtown to Shelton Square. A bike lane would be nice too...maybe a kid would actually get on a bike if they could safely ride to Wendys or Starbucks." - Aimee Peterson "Times are tough with budgets and all !! Maybe next year!!

Leah, I have never actually noticed the signs, but I have noticed a complete lack of sidewalks throughout the entire town...with the exception of the town center. No sidewalks is something I find very odd...and contributes to the negative view that suburban towns such as Shelton have earned themselves over the years.

Hey Chris -- Thanks for your comment. There is actually a Board of Aldermen street committee meeting on Tuesday, Feb 5 at 6 p.m. in City Hall. The public is welcome to attend, so maybe this is something you'd like to bring up!
