COLUMBUS, Ind. — The Columbus Board of Public Works and Safety approved a new street-striping program on two thoroughfares near a cluster of schools on the city's northside.
The initiative is expected to help slow traffic and raise awareness of bicyclists near Schmitt Elementary, Northside Middle and Columbus North High schools. It will affect parts of Home Avenue and 27th Street, but there was no immediate timeline on when the work would be done.
Streets will be marked with bicycle “sharrow” symbols, and, in some areas, white lines on either side of the street will establish curbside parking and reduce the width of traffic lanes. The change will affect Home Avenue between 19th and 25th streets and 27th Street between Washington and Maple streets.
Please read Wednesday's edition of The Republic for more information.
