Temporary stop signs now permanent

PdC council denies residential accessory structure regulations

By Correne Martin

The city of Prairie du Chien has a number of new, permanent stop signs in place following common council review and action Tuesday night. During the Marquette Road construction project this summer, signs were installed temporarily on several main streets to aid in traffic safety. Since the project’s completion, the public works committee and council needed to decide whether they should remain indefinitely.

The council approved permanent stop signs at the following intersections: South Dousman and East Iowa, South Dousman and East Crawford, West Blackhawk and Main, and West Washington and North Main. The council also chose to remove the temporary signs at North Ohio and Haydn.
