A section of Sixth Avenue North near St. Edmond Catholic School and Fort Dodge Senior High School will be opened to two-way traffic on Wednesday, according to Fort Dodge City Engineer Tony Trotter.

Two-way traffic will be allowed on Sixth Avenue North between 25th Street and Martin Luther King Drive, he said.

Currently, traffic can only go eastbound on Sixth Avenue North between 22nd Street and Martin Luther King Drive.

That stretch of road used to be a two-way street. It was converted to one-way traffic several years ago to ease the flow of vehicles to the main entrance of St. Edmond Elementary School, which faces Sixth Avenue North.

Trotter said the change back to two-way traffic is being made to provide more access to and from the new parking lot on the west side of Fort Dodge Senior High, 819 N. 25th St. He said he expects the change will be permanent.
