Transportation - April 3, 2017
Because of increasing traffic volume, left turns from Fourth Street on to Cherry Street and Marshall Street are no longer allowed at any time. Previously, left turns were only prohibited during peak traffic hours.
Connie James, the deputy director of transportation, said that the short block between Cherry and Marshall Streets necessitated the change. "Because of the short length of that block, we were seeing gridlock when a car was waiting to turn left onto either Cherry or Marshall streets," James said. "This change should alleviate this problem."
