The Lawrence City Commission will consider today whether to approve a crossing guard for the intersection of George Williams Way and Harvard Road.
The crosswalk at the intersection, first connected in the fall of 2005, should serve about 40 kids each day, Chuck Soules, the city's Public Works director, said.
The proposed crossing guard, recommended unanimously by the Traffic Safety Commission, will monitor the intersection in both the morning and the evening, when students travel to and from nearby Langston Hughes School.
Neighbors predict more traffic will travel through the intersection since George Williams Way tied into Sixth Street this spring.
The project would cost a total of $5,500 per year, Soules said.
