At the request of the Smithfield Police Department and South Smithfield Elementary, new signs will be in place before the start of the next school year indicating the hours Vermont Street is only a one-way designation.
In January 2000, the Smithfield Town Council agreed to place a one-way restriction on Vermont Street, between Sanders and Bingham Streets, between the hours of 7:30am and 8:30am and again from 2:00pm to 3:00pm. But over the years the hours the school operates has changed.
The new signs will include the new times of the one-way restrictions: 7:40am to 8:40am and from 3:20pm. to 4:10pm.
