Let’s clarify the street signs

By From page A11 | March 26, 2014

Fairfield has many long and often busy streets such as North Texas Street.

The street numbers on North Texas Street run from No. 1 to almost No. 4000. At times the street is very busy with both cars and pedestrians.

If you drive a car and you are trying to find a specific house number, it becomes very dangerous and almost impossible. It is difficult to drive safely and find your destined building number, without killing or injuring several pedestrians.

To make the situation worse, most stores and houses on North Texas Street do not have visible street numbers.

Following is a suggestion that could possibly make the environment between pedestrians, cars and businesses a little safer.

The city of Fairfield maintains light posts on both sides of the North Texas Street. Up on each light post could we for example show the nearest building number on the right side of the road (the driver’s direction) and the building number on the opposite side?

    A bit of advice from Rich----use Google maps to preplan your and your family members trips. You can punch in specific addresses and see the overhead and street views to familiarize yourself with the routing, intersections, parking etc.
