It seems like such a simple thing, it took so long, I think it's going to happen!

Ann, thanks for all your help with the pedestrian crossing that is to happen this fall when the street gets resurfaced! It will be so much safer.

I believe that was a suggestion by one individual.

I can't believe there is consideration being raised to put Harvard Terr back to an eastbound street. Back when it was switched it was only to be on a "trial" basis; it was first proposed in order to cut down on traffic making eastbound turns and blowing the stop signs at Harvard and Barton. Now we're concerned with the extra traffic on Muldord. There's simply too much vehicular traffic on the entire beughbopd, so I find it hard to believe that there's any good solution.

More good news - we have been notified of our award for our CDBG allocation that includes the Brummel Park tot lot renovation. I hope not to jinx anything but we expect the cash in about 30 days.

Alley paving in the 700 Block of Brummel has been my project for several years but since the plan is to use Community Development Block Grant Funds I didn’t want to get peoples' hopes up and then have nothing happen. So finally, we have money and it is true, the job is out to bid – keep your fingers crossed – your alley is going to be paved, drainage installed and speed humps constructed this fall. Once the bids come in and timing is known, we will have a neighborhood meeting. This is really a great benefit, congratulations! There is no special assessment.

About traffic control on Asbury between Oakton and Howard: based on several requests, we have been working on this for a while but I think we have it under control thanks to everyone! We will be getting a signed crossing at Harvard Terrace.

First let me say we have been notified by the state that Asbury between Oakton and Howard is going to be milled and resurfaced this later this summer.

Because we had not heard on July 18, our traffic engineer was able to finally reach the the party at IDOT who handles pedestrian crossings. A 4-feet wide median is required by IDOT to place the sign in the centerline of the street. Their expert staff, in Springfield confirmed that it does not need to be raised. So, we will prepare design drawings showing a flush painted 4 foot wide median on either side of the intersection. We will also coordinate with IDOT to see if the work can be included in their Asbury resurfacing contract. So it is very likely that crossing will be safer in the fall and we will have a resurfaced street as well!
We reviewed the location. In both directions we have advanced pedestrian crossings, state law stop for pedestrians, pedestrian crossing/down arrow signs. The high visibility markings are in good condition.

There are so many young kids on Harvard Terrace now I'd hate to see the one way's change. I've lived here 30 years and the traffic is soooo much better now. Much less cut through's and much slower traffic.

I think that might've been more than 20 years ago. Not sure. I'll check. Before radical move like that would happen, I'd want a vote of the entire street.

Making Harvard eastbound from Asbury to Barton again would cause a ton of cut-thru traffic from Asbury when there is a long back-up from the light at Oakton. I don't think the neighbors would like that, especially when vehicles speed down the street.

Or better yet, return the traffic on the block of Harvard Terrace between Asbury and Barton to an eastbound direction, like it was twenty years ago. This would prevent vehicles from constantly turning the wrong way onto Mulford from Asbury.

A stop sign somewhere between Oakton and Howard on Asbury would
be nice. It's impossible enter Asbury from the east side during
rush hour. Not to mention blind spots from exiting alleys. Sigh.

The marked crosswalk just north of the Yellow Line bridge on Asbury gets consistently blown by drivers. I've seen as many as 20 blast past schoolkids who timidly but wisely stayed at the curb. Improvement? Enforcement as the school year starts?

Hi Ann, I just saw 2 guys in yellow vests at Harvard and Asbury...overheard one of them say as I slowly passed them... "if you have an island jut out here..." I think they were discussing a better crosswalk! Maybe we won't have to jump up and down and wave to the drivers to stop anymore.

Hi Ann. A little birdie told me that the north alley on the 700 block of Brummel is going to be paved.....is there any substance to that rumor?
Thanks!

If you want to increase the chances that your street will not flood, please go out now and clean the leaves, grass clippings, trash and other debris from the street drain closest to your house.

Just did that in the 1100 block of Austin. It really helps.

Please do not use your hands--a flat-edged shovel works best. Just throw it in the trash or on your parkway for now. I just found broken glass in my closest drain.
