DUNKIRK, N.Y. (WIVB) — There will be some new stop signs and changes to traffic control in Dunkirk as more kids prepare to start middle school.
These changes took effect on Friday:
- Eagle/5th Street intersection is now a 4-way stop
- Parking area on Eagle Street is converted to a bus loop for drop-offs
- Bus loop on Swan Street is now a parent drop-off area. Parents should enter the loop by coming north on Swan Street from 6th Street and making a right turn. There will be no left turns into the parent drop-off area on Swan for vehicles traveling south on Swan from 5th Street.
- A crossing guard will be at the intersection of 5th and Swan streets
These changes came after a recent Public Safety Committee meeting in the city, where Dunkirk City School District representatives met with committee members.
