We wish to comment on the proposed bikeway crosswalk across Palmer Avenue to Goodwill Park. We feel this will create an accident waiting to happen, particularly in the summer months. We live close to the bike path and see how busy it is early morning on into the evening and see heavy traffic on Palmer Avenue, particularly during morning and afternoon commutes. The crosswalk would also be close to the intersection of Palmer Avenue and Route 28, a difficult area unto itself. Congestion occurs in this area daily, and we feel a crosswalk only adds to it and also creates a potential danger to bikers, regardless of the proposed safety features.
