Loading Zone Needed

Dean Street


Is a loading zone needed on Dean Street alongside Angelo's Restaurant, so that delivery trucks can park in the mornings without interfering with traffic?

Obviously, delivery trucks need to stop to unload. So why not create a loading zone, say from 6:30-9:30AM?

I have made this suggestion to City Hall over the past couple of years. The second time, I was told it would be considered. There is a traffic problem on Dean Street, when trucks park and block the northbound lane. Traffic on Dean Street is forced to drive around parked trucks, and drivers turning right off Van Buren Street at the Opera House are surprised to find oncoming vehicles in their lane.

Will it take a head-on crash by an inattentive driver to result in action? How big of a deal would it be to take out 2-3 parking spaces and give these truck drivers a legal place to park?
