Tree and sign need to be moved

Local resident nearly hit twice on Lougheed Highway crosswalk

Editor, The Record:

I would like to know if anything can be done in the area by Prospera Credit Union on Lougheed Highway at the crosswalk. As you enter the crosswalk, the cars on the left light can’t see you trying to get to the other side when they come off the Cedar Connector. And they can’t see you trying to cross until they turn up onto the highway.

I have a walker which means I have to be extra careful. It doesn’t help that in front of the credit union there is a sign and a tree which makes it hard to see what’s coming as the traffic moves too fast.

I would like the District of Mission or provincial highways department to move both the tree and the sign. I’ve been nearly hit twice.
