The “pedestrian improvements” at the corner of Church and Throup Rd—a major school-child pedestrian route—initiated in September 26, 2016, remains incomplete.
The temporary road markings separating the roadway from the expanded shoulder, aka “the sidewalk,” have become covered with road dirt and are essentially invisible. The move-able pylons that sometimes mark the divide are more often in the ditch than along the roadway (see the image below).
SPN has an inquiry with the District, and when we hear from them, we will share that information. Alternatively, the District staff and/or Councillors are always welcome to leave update information in the comments below.
On September 26, 2016, the District released a notice there there were upcoming pedestrian improvements at Church and Throup. Improvements included a widening the road shoulder and installing asphalt sidewalk on Church Road connecting to Throup Road.
Fast forward four months: this is what the intersection looks like. On a good day, the cautionary pylons have been lifted out of the ditch and placed back on the road.
