93rd Ave Improvements

As part of the 95th and Avery project, we’ve heard concerns from some neighbors about cut-through traffic, speeding, and pedestrian safety on 93rd Avenue. We need your help to identify which specific changes make most sense for this street. Depending upon available budget, possible changes could include constructing sidewalks on one or both sides of the north end of 93rd Avenue, or implementing traffic calming measures, such as a driver feedback sign, speed humps, or converting the street to one way (southbound).

Mejores Avenida 93

Como parte del proyecto de las calles 95 y Avery, hemos estado recibiendo comentarios de los vecinos sobre la Avenida 93. Los comentarios incluyen preocupaciones sobre los automovilistas que usan esta calle como un atajo, sobre los automovilistas que manejan a exceso de velocidad y sobre la seguridad peatonal en general del vecindario. Necesitamos su ayuda para identificar los cambios específicos en infraestructura que considere lo más necesarios para esta calle. Dependiendo del presupuesto disponible estos cambios podrían incluir: nuevas banquetas sobre ambos o un solo lado en norte de la Avenida 93, o la implementación de medidas para calmar el flujo vehicular como letreros con radares de velocidad (sólo proveen información al automovilista, no dan multas), topes o convertir la calle a un solo sentido.
