Roger is participating on the technical advisory committee and will seek input on how to best design this new crossing.

The Police Bureau’s Traffic Division recently conducted some highly publicized enforcement/education missions at selected intersections. Lieutenant Bryan Parman will discuss the results and long-term planning.
