A new raised crosswalk is being constructed on Tufts Avenue, as the City of Everett continues to improve infrastructure for the safety of the residents in the community. The raised crosswalk will aide in traffic calming in the area and improve pedestrian visibility and mobility.
“Ensuring that pedestrians are safe on our streets is a top priority of my administration. This new crosswalk will improve the visibility of pedestrians, while providing drivers with a physical reminder to slow down,” said Mayor Carlo DeMaria.
Mayor DeMaria vowed to continue to improve pedestrian safety throughout Everett, which includes implementing traffic calming measures in front of all schools, parks, public gathering spaces and long streets where cars can move quickly.
