MADISON (WKOW) -- The City of Madison wants to improve safety on a main street on the city's north side.
Alder Satya Rhodes-Conway introduced a resolution Tuesday night to authorize a study on N. Sherman Avenue.
The city's Traffic Engineering Division says there were 170 crashes in the N. Sherman corridor from Northport Dr. to Roth Ave. between 2007 and 2011.
North District Police Captain Cameron McLay says pedestrian safety is also an issue because there are homes and parks along the corridor.
The Common Council will vote on the resolution at its meeting on October 2. A public meeting on the study is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on October 11 at the Warner Park Community Recreation Center.
