Village Crosswalks

Due to winter weather, the village crosswalks that intersect Broadway at Westcott, Emerson and Church St. have been removed. State law requires drivers must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians, particularly if a pedestrian is in a crosswalk. This law is in effect all year long, even when the signs are not in the roadway.
