MARSHFIELD — Beginning on Monday afternoon, from 4:30 p.m. until 8 p.m. West Fifth Street from Oak Avenue to Schmidt Avenue will be closed to traffic for trick or treaters. The following streets will be closed at Fifth Street: Hardacre Avenue, Wisconsin Avenue, Adams Avenue, Drake Avenue, and Columbus Avenue.
Due to the number of children who trick or treat in this area, the city anticipates that the side streets noted will be difficult to park on, and alternate side parking on ditched streets will be strictly enforced. On ditched streets during the month of October, vehicles are required to park on the even side of the street, which is the west or south side. Please note that no parking will be allowed on Fifth Street within the road closure limits.
It is recommended that patrons of this area use the parking lots at the following locations:
—Steven J. Miller Park.
—Our Lady of Peace lot located behind the church.
We encourage that all motorists take extreme care throughout the city as there will be many children out trick or treating.
If there are questions concerning this or other traffic control matters within the city, contact the engineering division at 715-486 -2034.
Road closures can be found on the city’s website at ci.marshfield.wi.us.
