Plans in the works to slow traffic on Vine

Coraopolis Council Member Rob Cardiman met with Lennon, Smith, Souleret Engineers to address dangerous conditions on Vine Street.

Cardiman said they had discussed a couple of ideas to implement changes to slow down traffic on Vine and Main streets starting with basic signage not to exceed $1,500.

Resident Alexandra Baker thanked Cardiman for considering the dangerous curve there.

“My son is blind and I’d really like him not to be hit by a car,” Baker said.

In an interview after the meeting, Baker said the problem was “the same as any street.”

“People come down there like Mario Andretti,” Baker said.

Her 5-year-old, Gideon, is also on the Autism spectrum, and she worries about him waiting for the bus, as he’s about to start school.

Baker, who works for Achieva and considers herself an advocate for people who face challenges like her son’s, is hoping the changes will save lives.

Cardiman declined to speak with Gazette 2.0.
