One-Way Traffic Rule Enacted at Rec Park

The Recreation Park Committee voted Tuesday to restrict vehicular traffic to one-way on the lake path at Maysville-Mason County Recreation Park. Vehicles will be allowed to go clockwise around the lake only.

Committee members, Judy Pfeffer and Annette Walters, said they have received numerous complaints from walkers about vehicles running them off the path or driving too fast. The new rule will allow pedestrians, most of whom walk counter clockwise, to see approaching vehicles. No rule was set restricting the direction of pedestrians.

Regarding vehicles that speed, Walters said that the police department has issued some citations at the park to drivers violating the speed limit on the lake path.
