- Gilbert Pedestrians & Cyclists to Get More Crosswalks
Residents who use the Gilbert trail system to get around will have more crosswalks available to them within the next few years. In mid-June the Gilbert Town Council voted to accept a $750,000 federal grant in addition to the towns own $50,000 funding in the year 2014.
Officials will be adding four mid-block crossing points along the public trail system which already has about 11 crossings. Town officials will have to follow a federal approval process for the project before construction can begin; the process can take as long as 16 months. Therefore, construction will likely not begin on these crossings until 2015.
Currently the crossings are planned for:
- Baseline Road at the Consolidated Canal, between Lindsay Road and Val Vista Drive & Eastern Canal, between Greenfield & Higley Road.
- Guadalupe Road, between Val Vista Drive and Greenfield Road.
- Elliot Road, between Val Vista Drive and Greenfield Road.
According to a town staff report, signals at the crossings will remain dark until activated by a pedestrian and will then flash yellow and turn red to allow for safer crossing. In Arizona more than 3,400 pedestrian and pedacyclist collisions were reported in 2011. Furthermore, of these accidents 5% were fatal.
If you or a loved one were harmed during a pedestrian or pedacyclist accident, contact an experienced Phoenix personal injury attorney to find out if you may be entitled to compensation for property damage, medical expenses, lost wages, and more.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Liz was great
Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
PLG is the best! Highly recommend. Love that they do so much to help the community.
Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
Sophia H. at Phillips Law Group has been an absolute joy to work with -quick, responsive, and professional in every interaction. Her breadth of knowledge, from administration to IT to finance, is nothing short of impressive.
If you are in need of legal support for a motor vehicle collision of any kind, I highly recommend going to Phillips Law Group Injury Lawyers. Sean Davis has exemplary knowledge and experience in this field, compassion for his clients, and excellent judgment and communication skills.
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
