Right Turn Lane Would Reduce Accidents At FDL Walmart Driveway


Money is included in Fond du Lac’s 2015 Capital Improvement Budget to design a right turn lane at the south driveway entrance to Walmart. State and Federal money will pay for 90 percent of the costs of putting in the lane, which is expected to reduce the number of accidents on Rolling Meadows Drive at the business. Police Captain Rob Duveneck (pictured) says over the five year period of 2009-2013 there were 68 reportable accidents and 17 of those were injury accidents. He says for many drivers it’s a visibility issue. City Engineer Paul DeVries says a right turn lane will resolve some of those visibility issues for people leaving the parking lot. He says they will include $19,000 in the 2015 CIP Budget for design of the project, but it takes a while for the process when state and federal funding is involved. He says construction would be late next year or in 2016.

What about the north entrance, that one is even worst to see when looking to the south, why don't they just line up the entrance with Rickmeyer drive and place set if lights, why waste more money that is going to just move the problem to the north, Does anybody in Fond du Lac think before they come up with ideas, unbelievable.
