A stretch of Seven Courts Drive in
Plans call for installing a brick island with pedestrian crossing on the road between the Seven Oaks Senior Center and Seven Oaks Elementary School.
The county will reconfigure Seven Oaks Drive between the Weis Market shopping center and the traffic circle so there is a two-way center turn lane, a single eastbound and westbound lane and parking lanes, Marks said. Existing pavement markings will be removed, replaced with new lanes designated with reflective paint.
The councilman noted that this stretch of road was the site of a hit-and-run that killed a local resident, Dorothy Moore, in January 2012. He said he has received numerous complaints about speeding and collisions on Seven Courts Drive.
"Seven Courts Drive is one of the busiest corridors in Perry Hall, but unfortunately it was never designed with pedestrians in mind," Marks said. "I think these changes will help."
