COLUMBIA CITY â Officials approved Columbia Cityâs first one-way roadway at last weekâs City Council meeting.
While there are no one-way streets within the city limits, there is soon to be a one-way alley, located near Eagle Tech Academy, on North Walnut Street.
Officials discussed the topic when school started in August. With more and more students attending ETA every year, the increased traffic at the school has posed some concerns.
âWeâve had complaints of some close-calls,â Columbia City Police Chief Tim Longenbaugh said. âAs time goes on, thereâs been more people at the school using the alley.â
The alley runs between Walnut and Elm Streets. For some time, the alley has been marked âone-wayâ but it wasnât defined in the cityâs ordinance.
