Marshfield, WI (OnFocus) A temporary one-way street will proceed this summer on 2nd Street from the block of S. Maple Ave. to S. Cedar Ave.

The formation of the one-way will likely happen in coordination with the reopening of the 2nd Street Community Center and Everett Roehl Marshfield Public Library, said Dan Knoeck, Director of Public Works in an update to the Board of Public Works.

The eastbound one-way street was approved last December by the Common Council in order to address a lack of available parking close to the facilities, particularly with requests in mind from the elderly who voiced the need for more handicap parking.

Temporary angled parking will be implemented this summer and later made permanent through construction.

A temporary one-way was set up last fall in order to gather public input on the parking solution. The project will be an extension of the existing one-way corridor which runs eastbound from S. Central Ave. to S. Maple Ave.
