Rules Target Peak Commuter Hours

In an effort to ease traffic congestion on North Avenue, the City Council has voted unanimously to prohibit parking between Sickles Avenue and Burling Lane during the hours of 7:00am to 9:00am, thereby establishing two full lanes of south-bound traffic at this location. The restrictions will be effective beginning May 26th. In addition, new directional signage will encourage the use of Memorial Highway as an access route to I-95, instead of North Avenue.

The City will evaluate the results of these changes during the next three months, and then determine whether to modify or make permanent the new rules.
