City Council is expected Thursday to vote on an ordinance regarding traffic control changes that have undergone a 90-day trial period.
The vote concerns signs that regulate Wayne Avenue in the Newberry section and State Street near the James V. Brown Library.
The Wayne Avenue change was requested by the Williamsport Area School District as part of the Safe Routes to School program.
The proposed ordinance was reviewed Tuesday by the city public works committee.
On Dec. 12, 2011, the city enacted a change at an alley intersecting with Wayne Avenue. It was for installing a one-way left arrow at the intersection, making the avenue one-way south between Fairview Terrace and Newberry Street.
"It's done as part of the 'safe routes' and to better accommodate bus traffic," said William C. Wright, general manager of the city Streets and Parks Department.
The other issue before council is the "No Parking Anytime" signs along severely narrow State Street, on both east and west sides, between East Fourth and Edwin streets.
It was a library request that will definitely help when the road must be cleared of snow, Wright said.
The issue before council will be an ordinance to amend an ordinance that was approved in 1961. As amended, it establishes stop signs, parking signs and other changes to the traffic code and amending traffic control maps.
"From time to time we go before the committee and eventually council regarding traffic control changes and to codify the ordinance," Wright said.
The committee, chaired by Councilman N. Clifford "Skip" Smith and attended by Councilwoman Bonnie Katz, had no other items before it on the agenda.
