Every year, approximately 14,000 people are killed or injured while crossing a street or highway. Proceed with caution... look to the left, right and left again before crossing. If pedestrian signals are provided, cross only with the "WALK" light.
Pedestrian crossing signals are designed to get you across busy streets safely. Some signals are not automatic and must be activated, those signals have a "Push Button For Walk Signal" sign posted above a button. To activate, simply push the button and wait for the "walk sign".
Both of these signs mean that you may walk. However, first you should:
- Look to the left, right and left again.
- Watch for turning cars.
- When it is safe, leave the curb and cross the street
Both of these "DON'T WALK" signals, when they are flashing, mean to use caution.
- If you are in the street, finish crossing the street.
- If you have not started crossing the street, stay on the curb.
(If the lights in these graphics aren't flashing, try your browser's reload or refresh button.)
These "DON'T WALK" signals, when the orange lights are steady, mean STOP.
- Stay on the curb.
If a button is provided, push the button and wait for the "WALK" signal.
Street Snow Removal
Secondary priority for snow removal are those streets determined as a collector. The collector street collects traffic from local streets in residential neighborhoods and channels it into the principal streets and highways. Streets classified as collector in Winfield include: 5th AV, East 12th AV, West 14th AV, 19th AV, 33rd AV, Viking BLVD, Wheat RD, Mound ST, College ST, Cherry ST, Bliss ST, a portion of Quail Ridge DR, and Broadway ST south of 19th AV.
Residential streets are not cleared. In areas where shadows from trees or buildings are present, conditions for melting and re-freezing are often present. Therefore snow, snow-pack and ice can remain on residential streets for days after principal streets are clear and dry. Residential streets that are partially or completed snow covered can be safely driven at appropriate speeds. Drivers should be alert for these areas.
For questions or concerns regarding Snow Removal call 620-221-5520 or email: Customer Service.
