OXFORD, PA — Oxford Borough, the Oxford Arts Alliance, and Oxford Mainstreet have partnered with the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) to create new safety features on Broad Street between 3rd Street and Niblock Alley/Railroad Avenue. Come celebrate the opening of the project, engage, and provide feedback at Oxford Mainstreet’s “Sounds of Summer” First Friday on August 4th, 2023.
A brightly colored mural painted on the road will alert motorists of pedestrian activity when turning from 3rd Street onto Broad Street. Drivers turning onto Broad Street from 3rd Street cannot always see pedestrians, especially if the turn is made too quickly. This pilot aims to showcase traffic calming features, including asphalt art and vertical road elements, and will be a step towards creating a safer pedestrian network in Oxford Borough.
This project will be an opportunity to collect important traffic data and hear community feedback with minimal cost and use of Borough resources. This data and feedback will help guide the direction for future pilots and recommendations for Oxford Borough’s Active Transportation Plan.
