[ARCHIVED] Residents Reminded to Obey 'Road Closed' Signs

August 26, 2016 – As the construction season winds down, the City of Midland reminds residents to obey all posted construction signs, particularly road closure signs along Main Street between Jerome Street and Orchard Drive. Midland Police Department has observed numerous vehicles bypassing signs in this area, which poses an immediate threat to worker safety and may cause damage to vehicles.

As a reminder:
• A “Road Closed to Thru Traffic” sign indicates that only those traveling to a destination within the construction zone may bypass the closure sign. If your destination lies outside of the construction zone, or if you can access your destination via another access point not within the construction zone, you should find an alternate route.

• A “Road Closed” sign indicates that no traffic should travel through the construction zone. In these instances, prior arrangements will be made with residents or business owners within the construction zone.

Midland Police Department has begun issuing tickets to motorists who do not obey posted construction signs in these areas.

For more information, contact City Engineering at 989-837-3348 or view project updates at http://bit.ly/midlandroads. Updates will also be shared on the City of Midland Construction Facebook page at facebook.com/midlandconstruction and on Twitter at @CityofMidlandMI.
