Ludington to consider yield signs near schools

April 5, 2013

LUDINGTON — Ludington City Council is expected to act on traffic control order’s issued by Police Chief Mark Barnett during its regular meeting Monday night at 6:30 p.m.

The orders establish yield signs in or near crosswalks at locations near schools in the city limits. The signs are being established because traffic hazards to pedestrians exist.

Those locations include:

  • North Gaylord Avenue at Haight Street (north and south sides of intersection)
  • Anderson Street west of Franklin Street (south to Ludington Ave.)
  • Tinkham Avenue east of Washington Avenue
  • North Washington Avenue north of Fitch Street
  • North Washington Avenue south of Stray Street
  • South Washington Avenue at Foster Street
  • Easter Filer Street west of South Emily Street
  • East Filer Street west of South Lavinia Street

Portable yield signs will be placed at the locations during school hours (8 a.m. through 4 p.m.) only requiring vehicle traffic to “yield when pedestrians are present.”

Some of the locations already have portable yield signs.
