It’s All School’s Week in McPherson, Kansas, which means the McPherson Police Department is preparing for a population swell and increased traffic as family members return home and visitors come to town to enjoy the festivities.

McPherson Traffic Section is using this week’s Traffic Stop to remind everyone to watch for new barricades and temporary signage at this year’s events. In McPherson, it’s illegal to remove, throw down, run over or interfere with any barricade placed to guard and protect a public work –and certainly All School’s Day is the largest public work to occur in McPherson each year. Additionally, when authorized signs are placed, no one may park at any time on any portion of street indicated by the “No Parking” signs.

Please be attentive to the many “No Parking” signs temporarily placed in the areas of Wickersham Park for the Carnival and Lakeside Park for May Fete. Also, beginning at 5:00 a.m. on Friday, barricades will be placed along Main Street from First Street on the north end to Haight Street on the south end which prevent travel onto Main and also between it and Maple or Ash Streets. Please be alert to these barricades to prevent property damage. Vehicles which unlawfully pass the barricades will be towed at the owner’s expense.

These temporary traffic controls promote public safety and reduce collisions at this annual favorite hometown holiday.You can find maps indicating barrier and sign placement on our homepage.

Thank you for your help in this endeavor to keep the focus on fun this Friday!
