Drivers near Middleton High School to see changes | News
Drivers in the area of Middleton High School will see signs going up next week indicating a traffic pattern change to help with congestion and dangerous driving after school lets out, according to a release.
The signs will indicate that there will no longer be eastbound access from Lee Street into the MHS student lot, according to the release. The restriction will create a safe flow of traffic after school westbound out of the lot.
The parking section in front of the Performing Arts Center will be one way westbound, according to the release. A barricade will be placed near the northwest corner of the PAC sidewalk to stop eastbound drivers.
A dead end sign (to be replaced with a no outlet sign) will be placed on Lee Street near the park to warn eastbound drivers, according to the release.
The southern exit onto Park Lawn Place from the MHS lot will also change to an exit and an entrance to accommodate bus flow issues.
School official said the changes will be a trial run through the end of this school year. If the changes work, they will make them permanent when the lot is redone in the summer of 2014 by adding permanent barricades and traffic signs.
