BAR HARBOR — The intersection of Park Street and Ledgelawn Avenue is slated to become a four-way stop. The Town Council approved a recommendation from the Parking and Traffic Committee for new stop signs on Ledgelawn last week.
Eight families with school-age children live in the two blocks between Waldron Avenue and Cromwell Harbor Road, resident Marie Yarborough said in a letter to the Parking and Traffic Committee in May. Many other families live further up Ledgelawn.
“Unfortunately, over the years, Ledgelawn Avenue has become the cut-through half-mile straight-shot thoroughfare for people trying to get through town quickly,” she wrote.
Stop signs were installed Tuesday but were removed on Wednesday. The installation first requires an ordinance change. A public hearing will be held in August.
