The Melrose-Mindoro School District recently announced at their monthly school board meeting that there will not be a reduced school zone speed limit on Hwy. 108 in front of the new consolidated campus. The DOT instead would like to see turn lanes put in place.

“We have been working with the school district with regards to that new development and the issue has come up, but what we are trying to do is come up with a solution to accommodate the turns off of Hwy. 108 into and out of the school so that we don’t have to impede the traffic on 108,” Rick Tumaniec, traffic engineer for the DOT, said.

Del DeBerg, superintendent for the Melrose-Mindoro School District, was hoping for more options.
