Responding to requests from Dickey Farms, McDonald's, and the Bingen Haus, a new crosswalk will be going in on State Route 14 west of downtown.
The crosswalk would go in near Dickey's fruit stand, and link Dickeys with the old fruit plant there. The crosswalk would basically connect driveway-to-driveway there.
Because WDOT regulations do not recommend placing crosswalks where there are not intersections, a lower speed limit in the area is part of the deal.
Plans calls to lower the speed limit from 35 mph to 25 mph.
"If we slow to 25 mph there, DOT will agree to the crosswalk," Mayor Brian Prigel explained.
The vote was unanimous.
