FDPD, School District Give School Traffic Reminders
Following a frustrating day of traffic in and around the new middle school, the Fort Dodge Police Department and Fort Dodge Community School District are issuing reminders to parents about several traffic rules. Parents are encouraged to use Dodger Drive to enter the middle school parking lot in order to keep 32nd street from backing up, and are asked not to drop students off along 10th Avenue North or 32nd Street. The left lane of the parking lot off 32nd street should have continuous traffic flow, and when entering the loading zone from 32nd street, drivers should pull as far west as possible before stopping. The parking lot on the north side of the middle school is for staff and buses only.
