Washington Street in front of the Watertown City School District will likely go from four lanes down to two before the end of this month.
That's according to the Watertown Daily Times, which reports crews could be out striping that stretch of road in the coming weeks.
Making Washington two lanes with a turning lane in the middle is one of a number of moves City Council approved in order to better protect students who walk to and from school. The Times reports other features include reducing the number of crosswalks, adding in a flashing light, and even "combining driveways of businesses in the area."
In preparation of the changes, a public hearing has been scheduled for Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Case Middle School.
