BOSTON – Councilor Flynn, working in conjunction with the Boston Transportation Department and fellow South Boston elected officials, announced the installation of a new blinking pedestrian sign at the intersection of Dorchester and West 4th Street, long considered one of the busiest and most dangerous intersections in South Boston. Neighbors and visitors to Marian Manor have long had concerns about the lack of pedestrian crossing signals in the area. This new blinking pedestrian signal will enhance traffic safety by alerting drivers to pedestrians crossing the street. Councilor Flynn and Councilor Michael Flaherty also recently met with the Boston Transportation Department about the issue of pedestrian safety, as well as long term and short term plans for hotspots like this and other areas throughout South Boston.
“I’d like to thank neighbors and pedestrian safety advocates for identifying this area for improvements, as well as BTD for the new blinking pedestrian signal at one of the most dangerous intersections in our community,” said Councilor Flynn. “Pedestrian safety is one of the most critical issues we face as a city, and I will continue to stay focused with my colleagues on infrastructure improvements, slower speeds, and enforcement.”
