9 suggested spots for rapid-flashing pedestrian lights

The West Windsor Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance was pleased to be asked our opinion on where additional rapid-flashing beacons should be installed in the township. These rapid-flashing lights, activated with the touch of a button, make our community safer for those who walk, run, scoot and bicycle. Several have previously been installed near the Princeton Junction train station, at some crossings for the Trolley Line Trail and between Grover Middle School and Village School, among other places.

In this letter to Mayor Marathe, we listed nine spots, including along Alexander Road, Clarksville Road, North Post Road as well as road crossings near parks and alongside the Trolley Line Trail, that should have them.

Where would you like to see a rapid-flashing beacon installed? Email us at wwbikeped@gmail.com with your ideas.

West Windsor has introduced the 2022-2023 budget, and we look forward to seeing where additional rapid-flashing beacons are planned. The public hearing on the budget is scheduled for May 9.
