WEDOWEE - The opening of the new First State Bank location in Wedowee will bring some changes in downtown traffic patterns.
There will continue to be two lanes of northbound traffic until the courthouse. Then there is just one lane until past the bank.
There will be angled parking spaces against the median on the northbound side from the back of Perryland until city hall.
Woodland Avenue East (Hwy. 48) will have a right turn lane north toward Wedowee Village Shopping Center. The other lane will go straight toward Southern States Bank or turn left through downtown. [There still won't be a traffic light.]
First State Bank customers exiting the parking lot onto Woodland Avenue East must turn right and circle behind the building toward Perryland and the back of the courthouse.
