Westchester Sq. gets traffic safety upgrades
Westchester Square is finally getting traffic safety measures residents have sought for more than three years.
The Department of Transportation has begun marking speed bump locations in the neighborhood. Work to install them will begin Thursday.
The DOT says 15 speed bumps, 13 "Slow Zone" signs and 20 mph markings will be placed in the neighborhood, which contains many schools.
A number of pedestrians or car passengers have been injured in the area over the years, and there was one fatality reported between 2007 and 2015.
The DOT says the project should be finished in November.
