Defiance Addressing Traffic Changes Soon

Although time is run­ning short, as long as they can round up enough signs to make it hap­pen, Defi­ance city offi­cials plan to imple­ment the new one-way traf­fic pat­tern for Fort Street and Wash­ing­ton Avenue, north of Sec­ond Street, by the end of this year.

The Cres­cent News reports that most every­one seems to be in agree­ment with the rec­om­men­da­tion to make traf­fic there one-way for east­bound and south­bound dri­vers. Once the change is in place, the con­tin­u­ous route will no longer be avail­able as a short­cut for west­bound motorists on Sec­ond Street attempt­ing to reach Clin­ton Street by turn­ing north onto Wash­ing­ton. Now, city offi­cials are tak­ing an inven­tory of signs to deter­mine if they have enough to make the change.

If the city does not have enough signs on hand, the rest will have to be ordered ASAP. Some peo­ple fear that the new traf­fic pat­tern will lead to con­ges­tion though.
