Motorists are asked to be mindful of a slight change to a crosswalk location in Marysville.
As of last Thursday morning the cross walk across Highway 95A at Marysville School has been moved to the arena side of the road.
This, says Wayne Pelter, District Principal for Health & Safety for the Rocky Mountain School District, makes a lot of sense as students can now cross directly onto the designated bike path that leads to the Rails to Trails.
Not only that, but by moving a little further south on the highway, the crossing guard will be more visible.
This will mean a bit of a change for parents parking at the school to pick up and drop off students. Parents are asked to park across the street and not along the school fence as that is now the student’s walking route.
Motorists are asked to be cautious because although the signage has been moved, the new crosswalk markings on the highway have yet to be painted.
Police have been asked to pay a little more attention to the area as motorists adapt to the change and the City’s bylaw officer will be enforcing the new no parking area.
