City Would Do Traffic Study Before Installing Light at Fatal Intersection

The city heard from residents — and family of a pedestrian who died — as it mulls doing a traffic study before installing a light at St. Adelaide's on Lowell Street.

Despite pleas from politicians and residents to move quickly in the wake of a pedestrian death at the Lowell Street crossing by St. Adelaide's, the city appears likely to do a traffic study first.

That's the word out of a City Council subcommittee that met Thursday to consider how to make the crossing safer, according to the Salem News.

Back in January, Theodore Buttner died from injuries suffered when he was struck by a car in the crossing.
