Prayers for Everyone Involved..A new fence was put up which blocks View For anyone to see properly through to the street east bound onto Ave J from 32nd Street East..Besides the fence being too far onto the street pedestrians have no Walkway!!! And No Handicap Access!!! When the fence went up Myself and many Neighbors agreed The fence will Cause Accidents because it blocks the view of the street..Anyways Why Is there No crosswalk or light considering Many Travel this Road To Eastside High School Even though the Road is Partially Dirt Road Many Teens Travel this Road..FYI The Company that put the fence up Came out to Check out the damage and said they will Bring the fence back to match the opposite side of 32nd street Fence that surrounds the homes…
“Preliminary investigation indicates a male adult in a Chevy Spark was traveling westbound on Avenue J and appeared to make a sudden left or U-turn at the intersection of 32nd Street East into the path of a male adult in a Hyundai Sonata, who was eastbound on Avenue J,” the news release states…… I don’t think the fence was the issue…..
