    The Issues


    We recognize that we are part of a larger community and that the issues that surround us impact our daily lives. In this respect, we have spent a good deal of time thinking about the impact that the Scajacuada and Main Street, for instance, have on our neighborhood and have advocated for change. The PCA Traffic Committee has worked to alleviate problems with the timing of the lights on Main Street, with the terrible configuration of the intersection of Main/Humboldt/Kensington.

    Issues specific to Parkside:

    1.       Excessive accidents at the Parkside Florence Intersection: *addressed by the 2016 construction/reconfiguration of the intersection
    2.       Cut-through traffic on Greenfield heading south in the morning
    3.       Cut-through traffic on Crescent heading south in the morning
    4.       Cut-through traffic on Fairfield heading north in the afternoon
    5.       Cut-through traffic on Woodward heading north in the afternoon
    6.       Cut-through traffic onto Robie from Parkside in the afternoon
    7.       Cut-through traffic on Summit, particularly at the intersections of Jewett and Amherst
    8.       Illegal jogged turn on to Woodward from 198/Humboldt Parkway: *addressed to some degree by the installation of bollards separating 198/Humboldt
    9.       Speeding
    10.   Driving through stop signs and failure to obey other directional signage.

    Issues that we see that are surrounding us:

    1.       Main Street lights timing
    2.       Parkside lights timing
    3.       Traffic on Amherst from Main to Wegmans
    4.       Main/Humboldt/Kensington intersection *This is supposed to be addressed by the DPW in spring/summer of 2018. The hope is that this means of exiting the 198 will be more frequently used than Parkside.
