Neighbor Reports Flashing Light at Buri Buri Park in Need of Repair

South San Francisco, CA   April 30, 2021  **UPDATE MAY 7, 2021 BELOW**

South City neighbor, Armando, has reported the flashing light at Buri Buri Park crosswalk is not working –

“The flashing crossing light in front of Buri Buri Park does not appear to be working.” Ar Mondo writes on our facebook wall and includes this video {CLICK HERE} to share his concerns. “I think this would be a good opportunity for the city to upgrade the light with one with more visibility and touchless operation, like the crossing lights on Grand Ave. The light currently in place is mostly ignored by drivers speeding down Arroyo, and with pedestrians crossing either with dogs or strollers, it would be a great safety improvement.”

 

In addition, we had a neighbor recently ask why there is no lighting at the bus stop on Arroyo in the Buri Buri neighorhood. “That bus stop is so dark” a neighbor wrote “It’s right across from the police station so you’d think someone would notice that it needs light there.”

 

UPDATE MAY 7, 2021

From Ar Mondo

Shout out to South San Francisco’s Public Works Dept. Less than a week after I posted my concern about the crossing light not working in front of Buri Buri Park, new lights have been installed. Kudos also to City Council member James Coleman who got the ball rolling on this fix. Great job everyone!

**I agree that light needs to be on and working. The flashing lights don’t see to make people slow down at all sometimes. It is a very dangerous area to cross and yes they are people with dogs and strollers or little kids walking through there.

You can’t always see a car coming because a car is parked there and by the time you get into the crosswalk you can sometimes by almost hit by the car befoer you see it. This area probably needs a red light when pedestrian crossing or a stop sign not flashing lights which people ignore.
