(ATLANTIC) In the interest of public safety, Atlantic Police Chief Steve Green has ordered that East 22ndStreet between Highway 71 and Olive Street be temporarily changed to a one way street.
The authorized direction of travel on this section of roadway will be westbound only. Additionally, the temporary speed limit on the affected portion will be a maximum speed of 15 miles per hour. Signage will be in place by 3:00 p.m. today and will become effective immediately. This action is being taken due to numerous near accident situations arising from the construction taking place on the roadway in the area.
Chief Green says all area residents should be aware that this section of roadway has been, and remains, closed to all through traffic. Officers will be stopping and citing anyone caught using the road as a throughway, as well as enforcing the speed limits. This order will be in effect until further notice.
