Berlin Improves Pedestrian Crossing After November Crash

Posted: Updated:
BERLIN, MD. - BERLIN., Md. - Route 113 in Berlin is getting a bit safer for those who walk around one particular part of town.

Berlin's Pedestrian Safety Committee pushed for changes to the intersection of Bay Street and 113 after a deadly crash in November, where one teen was killed and his brother lost a leg.

The area now has new crosswalks, signage and a new speed lowered speed limit. The maximum speed is now 45 m.p.h., down from 55 m.p.h.

Officials say a lit crossing signal will be installed by September.
