City Reminds Drivers Of New Traffic Patterns

The city of Artesia is remingdoing drivers of the new one-way traffic patters on several streets, which have caused some confusion. The issues involve JJ Clarke and Mahone, where striping work is now underway. Some drivers have apparently felt that the removal of the yellow curbing meant that the road went back to its original state, where on-street parking was allowed, but that’s not the case. The city is currently working to reduce Mahone and JJ Clarke to one traffic lane each direction The outside lanes will be designated as parking lanes only.
