• Crosswalks could use smoothing

Crosswalks could use smoothing

Most of the crosswalks are not wheelchair friendly. Especially in Waimea town. The crosswalks have been painted over on top of the old paint. Causing the paint to build up and is way too thick and lumpy for wheelchairs to travel on. The crosswalks around the island pose as accidents waiting to happen for a wheelchair user.

Also, if the paint on the crosswalk keep building up. It can cause someone to trip and fall.

DOT, let’s scrape these built-up painted crosswalks and smooth it with fresh paint.
