Marshfield aldermen approve extended one-way trial on East Second
By Hub City Times staff
MARSHFIELD – Marshfield Aldermen are extending one-way traffic on East Second Street in the city’s downtown.
With Alderman Jason Zaleski absent, the Marshfield Common Council voted eight to one on Aug. 27 in favor of extending one-way traffic on East Second by one block, between Maple and Cedar Avenues, past the new library and 2nd Street Community and Senior Center. The council also signed off on a recommendation from the city’s Board of Public Works to experiment with angled parking.
Alderman Tom Witzel voted against the plan.
Alderman Mike Feirer said the additional parking is needed for what has become a very busy Senior Center during the day, with limited parking close to the door.
The council agreed to implement the additional one-way direction on a trial basis to last two months, or until snow arrives.
Second Street is already a one-way street from Central to Maple.
