Two stop signs on the northeast side of Prairie du Chien were removed by city resolutions approved at Tuesday night’s council meeting. The two signs were located at Dousman Street at the intersection of Dunn Street, and on East Dunn Street at the intersection of South State Street. The removal was decided in order to improve traffic flow in those areas, as the city’s hospital is no longer located in that location.

Further housekeeping action was approved by the council regarding North and South Illinois Street. Until recently, drivers approaching Illinois Street from Park Street were unable to take a left or a right on Illinois. An ordinance amendment passed, which will now permit drivers to turn north on Illinois Street there.

Another amendment to traffic in Prairie du Chien was approved near the New Frontier Academy at the United Methodist Church on Dousman Street. This change makes the vicinity a school zone, which will reduce speed by the school to 15 mph when children are present.
