  1. I am a little concerned that there was nothing done to address the largest hazard that I can see with traffic on 61 and that is safe crossways. I don’t think the crosswalk signs and the single stop light are the best approach to address the high volume of foot traffic crossing the highway most of the summer. In a perfect world , it would be nice to have an elevated bridge across 61 to safely allow pedestrians to cross without further congestion the flow of cars on 61.
