PTA plans meeting on traffic proposals


A meeting to discuss plans to slow traffic on Tamar Drive and Majors Lane will be held at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Jeffers Hill Elementary School cafeteria.

The meeting is sponsored by the Jeffers Hill PTA Safety Committee.

Ed Walter, chief of traffic engineering, and George Frangos, project manager, will present the plans to the community.

Proposals include: three raised intersections, a raised crosswalk and five speed humps.

The raised intersections would be at Tamar Drive and Majors Lane, Tamar Drive and Old Montgomery Road, and Majors Lane and Old Montgomery Road.

The pedestrian crosswalk at Footed Ridge would be raised, and the speed bumps would be located along the Tamar Drive-Majors Lane circuit.

The project would go into effect if accepted by a community vote. Ballots are to be mailed at a later date. A 60 percent affirmative vote of returned ballots would allow the project to proceed.

Information: 997-2665.
