The town of Windermere announced Friday, Feb. 28, that new signage is in place to curtail cut-through traffic along residential roads during busy hours.

As per a recommendation from the town’s Long Range Planning Committee, the following signs have been posted:

  • No right-hand turn from Main Street onto East Seventh Avenue, East Eighth Avenue or East Ninth Avenue between the hours of 7 to 9 a.m., Monday through Friday
  • No driving straight across Main Street from Chase Road to 12th Avenue between the hours of 7 to 9 a.m., Monday through Friday
  • No right-hand turn from East Sixth Avenue onto Ridgewood Drive or Lake Street between the hours of 4 to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday

The town of Windermere will be posting links to a survey soon where residents can share their thoughts with town staff.
