Making streets safer

New traffic signal on Temple
Originally uploaded by CD-13
Students from Rosemont Elementary School helped me dedicate a new traffic signal on Temple Street at Rosemont Avenue. More than 22,000 cars pass through this intersection every day and the new signal will make it safer for the 1,200 students who attend Rosemont and nearby Lake Street Primary Center. The community has been advocating for a traffic light here for years. It was great to be able to help them bring this much needed addition to their neighborhood.
