These workers appeared today (Thursday, March 12, 2009) to complete the Union County improvements at Park & Seventh. They included markings for left turn lanes, crosswalk delineations and new signage.
The street marking process involved trillions of small glass beads.
Even though road repairs have not been done since New Jersey American Water ripped up the intersection, the workers valiantly drove their striping machines over the potholes.
Kind of made a person woozy to look at it.
Oh Mary, where's the Dramamine?
The update includes turn lanes on all four corners.
The old yellow lines were scraped away by one machine and this machine made new ones.
Turn left, turn right, go straight, just watch out for those pesky pedestrians.
Hmmm. You mean it's been wrong all these years? Why yes, to the west of Park Avenue it is indeed West Seventh Street.
Park Avenue is always Park Avenue and is the border between East and West.
And here we are at Park and East Seventh Street. No indication of when the duplicative signage will be taken away.
Once all systems and signage are operative, including push buttons for pedestrian crossings, I think all the many hundreds of people who cross here daily on foot and even the thousands of drivers who travel the crossroad will be much happier. Thanks to Union County for this project. Click here
