School Zone on Washington Avenue

All drivers in Cloquet should be aware that there is a school zone controlling traffic speed in front of the new middle school on Washington Avenue.  The speed limit in that school zone is 20 MPH during school hours.  Please help control speed in that zone by slowing to 20 MPH.  That will force all drivers to attend to that speed limit.  We are continuing to work with county and city officials to assure pedestrian and auto safety on Washington Avenue.  Please also be aware that there are over 1500 students housed in the high school and middle school.  During school hours, drivers should pay close attention to pedestrian traffic around those schools on Doddridge Avenue, 18th Street, 22nd Street, and Washington Ave.

Thank you for your help and attention to pedestrian and auto safety.

Ken Scarbrough, Cloquet School Superintendent
