Staying Safe on South Street

I wanted to take a moment to pass on my observations concerning the traffic signals at South Street and I-76. These modern signals have sensors and are “smart,” meaning that the time and pattern can vary depending on the amount of traffic. This keeps traffic moving, but also means that the pattern is not always consistent. Therefore, it’s very important to obey the traffic signals and wait for the appropriate signal. Pedestrians must press the signal button in order to get a walk signal in the sequence;the ones for East-West crossings are located on the angled curve.

The vehicular speed limit on the entire length of the bridge is 25 mph with no turn on red. Slow down. The new bridge is a vast improvement over the old bridge, but common sense and traffic laws still apply for motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians.
