Some people who parked in the lot walk up the bank and cross at the intersection, causing a dangerous situation. The Pedestrian & Traffic Safety Task Force noted that a fence would both look nice and hopefully would deter people from climbing the bank. On Sept. 30 the Hardwick Highway Department personnel put up an 80-foot split rail fence.
