Study looks at Midway Rd. issues

With traffic increasing on Midway Road in Appleton and Menasha, the two communities could work together to make some safety improvements.

Appleton traffic engineer Eric Lom studied the stretch, between S. Oneida Street and Plank Road. He says there are inadequate sight-lines for drivers and pedestrians, at four intersections.

Lom says they could build pedestrian islands, so people don't have to cross the entire street at once. For drivers, they might try to work with property owners, to improve the sight-lines.

Lom presented his findings to the city's municipal services committee last night. Members hope to partner with Menasha, and Calumet County, to talk about the improvements.
