LOCAL ROADWAY CHANGES POSTED

In an effort to protect public safety for local pedestrians and traffic for anyone going to the Garfield School, Eliot Road is now a permanent one-way heading westbound from Porter Avenue to Clark Road.

Standish Road is now a permanent one way eastbound from Eliot Road to Porter Ave.  The only correct way to get to the Garfield school is to take Standish Road from Eliot Road take a left at Garfield Avenue. Porter Avenue is one way northbound from Standish Road to Eliot Road.

Clark Road is now a permanent one-way Northbound from Eliot Road to Wolcott Road and Curtis Road is a permanent one-way southbound from Wolcott Road to Eliot Road.

Also, Arlington Avenue is now a permanent one-way Northbound from James Street to Centennial Avenue.

The Revere Traffic Commission approved these actions last fall after public hearings were conducted to allow Emergency vehicles to safely reach any responding locations on these streets.

The speed limit on these roads is 20 mph.  Watch for pedestrians walking in the area.  Also, obey the Stop signs. Thank you for your cooperation. Drive safely.
