Parents and students at Codman Academy Public Charter School have embarked on a project to collect data about traffic speeds on Epping Street, a popular one-way, cut-through street next to the school that the school says is an increasing hazard to public safety. Above, BNN-TV's Neighborhood Network News filed this report on the issue. School officials are waiting to hear from the City of Boston's Transportation Department if they'll close Epping Street during the current expansion of Codman Square Health Center, which houses the charter school.
