Survey of Marshfield street complete, changes in works

Posted:
MARSHFIELD (WAOW) -

Marshfield Public Works leaders are trying to figure out how to improve a busy road. Officials say they've heard safety concerns from people who live on Peach Avenue.

Back in February, they spend $17,000 on a survey, and the results are on.

City leaders say the report raised some key issues.

"Peak travel times that are difficult to access the roadway itself, with some of the side street movements. The accident rates we looked at are nothing that would jump out at you, but there are always improvements that can be made," Marshfield City Engineer Tom Turchi said.

City leaders say some of the solutions could include limiting left turns at certain times or widening the pavement. They say they don't have a set timeline for making those changes.
