PROSPECT HEIGHTS - Prospect Heights residents say their input is necessary before the Department of Transportation implements any pedestrian safety project.

The Department of Transportation came up with plans to make the neighborhood safer, especially at the intersection of Washington and Atlantic avenues. One of the changes, however, includes a possible bike lane on Washington Avenue. Residents say the new layout may affect local businesses along the thoroughfare.

According to a Washington Avenue/Prospect Heights Association survey, businesses said they would welcome the initiative.

Some of the business owners say they are excited about working with the DOT on improving their community.
