Mirror on sidewalk in Fargo neighborhood helps drivers see over big snow piles

We are part of The Trust Project.

FARGO — Residents of a neighborhood in far south Fargo are thankful for someone who took matters into their own hands to address visibility problems at a busy intersection.

The Rose Creek neighborhood on 40th Avenue South — across the street from Discovery Middle School — has a mirror set up on one of the corner sidewalks.

It's there to help drivers pulling out of the neighborhood's entrance see how the traffic is moving without having to look around big snow piles, which are still around from the snowstorm that dropped over a foot of snow in the Fargo-Moorhead metro two weeks ago.

Richard Bailly, who's lived in Rose Creek for the past seven years, said the mirror is needed for a busy traffic area like 40th Avenue South. The mirror also helps him see if kids from the school are crossing the street, and he believes it will help to prevent accidents from happening.

Neighbors interviewed by WDAY News didn't know who put up the mirror but said it's helpful while they wait for crews to clear off the snowdrifts.
