Great work has been completed. Now, if we can only get people to use the existing cross walk at Woodside Road/Canada/Mountain Home Road. I have to stop sometimes 2 times before the cross walk to let people cross the road. This is ridiculous...jay walking allowed in Woodside? Another cross walk by the wooden fish will be useless if people do not use the one now. That means with the added cross walk, one might have to stop maybe 3 times before stopping at the stop sign in a very short distance. Are we getting lazy to simply just walk a few more feet and use the existing cross walk?

What is the big hurry? You will get to the stop and have to wait anyway. People need to take it a bit more easy on the roads in general. Driving requires no effort compared to walking. Lets get more people out of their car rather than driving accross Woodside Rd to get from Bucks to Roberts. Drive coutiosly and give your neighbors a brake and BREATH.

Totally great improvements. Just one question: couldn't the shoulder area / bike lane / school morning parking lane in front of the school been just 6" wider? With the lovely new curb it seems certain that we will see as many cars as ever parked with wheels crossing out on to the roadway during drop off / pickup hours.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
