Niagara Region has now completed the pedestrian count and warrant process and obtained further data from observation and assessment of traffic in the area of the new West Niagara Secondary School in the Town of Lincoln. As a result of these reviews, the Region is moving forward with a temporary pedestrian crossover in the area, the installation of which will be expedited by the Region. In addition, the Region will be prohibiting parking on the north and south sides of King Street in front of the school to deter vehicles from stopping on the shoulder of the road to drop off students. Niagara Region will also be considering the potential for a permanent pedestrian signal or crossover as part of the planned reconstruction project on King Street between the school and Cabernet Street.
