During construction on Wilton Drive this past winter, care was not taken to help pedestrians navigate the challenging terrain. Many could be seen climbing through construction areas and ducking under hazard tape into the street amidst oncoming traffic.
Despite often frequenting the Drive these past months, not once did I see any town personnel assigned to help the pedestrian. It surely would have been a sad memorial to Greg Futchi if visitors were hurt because of this lack of supervision.
Doug Blevins and Norm Kent and others will have opinions -both positive and negative-about the work being done, but let’s all agree that of the millions being spent, some should be directed to putting police officers on foot in the neighborhood when safety demands it.
