Waterloo’s first speed table is scheduled to be installed in the 600 block of Burton Avenue this week. This is an attempt to improve pedestrian safety at an existing crosswalk.  The crosswalk will be raised 4 inches. It will be 10 ft wide. There will be 6 ft tapered approaches on both sides of the table.  Waterloo normally installs speed humps to control speed in residential areas.  At this location improving the crosswalk is the main goal. Park Road will be closed to through traffic from Fairview/Lafayette to Burton Avenue.  Burton Avenue will be closed to through traffic from Conger to Park Road.  The public will be able to drive to the baseball fields. The roadwork will begin at 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 19, 2012 and should end by 3:00 p.m. on Thursday.
