Morton – Intersections as Gateways

Intersections as Gateways

State Route 7 at the northern and southern entries into Morton compose two opportunities to mark entry into town, and connect visitors and residents alike to downtown.  Both locations illustrate opportunities to increase pedestrian safety while making a gateway.  The southern gateway poses a more significant priority currently because of its association with the proposed roundabout.  The considerable amount of paved surface can be better utilized as an opportunity to create a pathway into downtown.
