The town of Moraga is making strides on a couple of Moraga Road crosswalk improvements.
This week, the dicey street crossing at Moraga and Corliss Drive got a newly painted, more visible crosswalk.
For that crosswalk and the one at Moraga Road and Woodford Drive (near Campolindo High), the council meets tonight (Wednesday) to discuss a proposal to supplement improvements at both intersections with solar-powered, off-grid streetlights. Public Works Director Edric Kwan, in a staff report for the council meeting, estimates energy savings of $360 per streetlight per year. The staff report accompanies this article as a PDF.
The Moraga Town Council meets at 7 p.m. at the Joaquin Moraga Intermediate School Auditorium, 1010 Camino Pablo.
The original project included in-pavement, pedestrian-activated, flashing warning lights in the crosswalks, but that ambitious effort was removed after input from the public last year.
