FERNDALE - City officials have requested increased police patrols on Main Street to deter drivers from crossing the solid-white fog line before turning onto Church Road.
Drivers have been crossing the fog line illegally to use the shoulder of the road as a right-turn lane. This can lead to a collision with vehicles staying in the legal lane before turning, city officials said.
When weather permits this winter, crews will create a turn lane to eliminate confusion, city project manager Katy Radder said. In the spring, crews will complete the Main Street widening project from Douglas to Church Road by laying down the final layer of asphalt and adding the final striping.
