Is adding an island to the middle of Washington Street near the Watertown City School complex a way to make it safer for pedestrians?
That's an option City Council member Teresa Macaluso told 7 News she and her fellow lawmakers are considering. This after an 11-year-old student was hit two weeks ago crossing Washington Street while walking to school.
There have been a couple of similar incidents over the last few years and council is attempting to find alternatives to the current layout.
