2-26-14 fdl city officials eye plan to reduce traffic crashes near Walmart

Fond du lac city officials are developing a plan to reduce the number of accidents on a busy Fond du Lac road.  Public Works Director Jordan Skiff says the city is applying for a DOT Highway Safety Improvement program grant to add a right hand turn lane on Rolling Meadows Drive near Walmart.  Skiff says there have been an average of 15 crashes per year over the past five years at the southern Walmart driveway off Rolling Meadows Drive.  Fond du Lac assistant police chief Steve Klein says its a very busy part of the community.  "With more and more retail outlets going out in that area there's been an increase in traffic volume and as part of our district policing officers identified that area as a problem area,"  Klein told WFDL news.  If the grant is approved the state would pick up 90-percent of the cost.
