In an effort to slow traffic in high pedestrian areas, SAU will be adding new speed bumps in both lanes of traffic on North Jackson Street in front of Overstreet Hall.
Signage for the new safety measures will be installed this week, and the speed bumps will be installed on Thursday, Dec. 10. Assistant University Police Chief Bryan Christenson said they are being installed “in relation to a future crosswalk relocation” at Overstreet.
The northbound speed bump will be placed near the Jackson Street intersection with East University; the southbound speed bump will be near West University, said Robert Nash, Physical Plant director.
Additional speed bumps will be installed in the coming weeks for the safety of pedestrians on campus.
