Reader Patty Foster asked: What is the purpose of the relatively new idea to put matching diagonally placed split-rail wooden fence units — along with a centered glossy painted black post sunk in the concrete in the middle of a yellow painted diamond outline — at the intersections of roads and sidewalks in Edmond?
City Engineer Steve Manek answered: The black bollard and the split rail fence are meant to prohibit motorized vehicles from driving on the sidewalk. We often have property owners drive on the sidewalks to access the backyard, as well as utility companies to get to their facilities. These measures are meant to keep them off the sidewalks as vehicles can damage them.
