Neighborhood Plan Includes Speed Tables, Raised Crosswalks

CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Canton Mayor Sherer’s Neighborhood Plan also includes speed tables.

Two of the heavy plastic extended speed bumps are being installed on a temporary basis soon on 6th Street NE just east of Shorb Avenue and on 14th Street SE between Cherry and Allen Avenues.

Canton Traffic Engineer Nick Loukas says speed tables can cost up to $20,000 each.

Similar raised crosswalks are also planned near several school buildings in NE Canton, using a Safe Routes to School grant.

One has been installed at Eastpointe Blvd NE and Stoneridge Drive at the trail crossing.

That’s off Plain Center Avenue.

Both devices are aimed at slowing drivers down.
