May 8, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Pedestrian safety has a new look in downtown Punxsutawney with the completion of PennDOT’s traffic signal project.

“The new signals may not seem important to many people, but for someone who has some type of special needs, it’s very important for them to get across the street safely,” Shawn Houck, PennDOT District 10 press safety officer, said during a downtown pedestrian safety effort Tuesday.

He said with the new system, even a child can now press a button and know where the exact physical location he or she is in case he or she becomes lost or needs assistance.
