Since Jackson and Roosevelt elementary schools have been closed and are no longer in use and students will be attending other schools, why are the school zone signs still posted?
— Yvonne E., Medford
You are one step ahead of Medford city engineers, Yvonne.
City staff are expected to remove the school zone signs and paint from around Jackson and Roosevelt in the next two weeks.
The speed limit will change to 25 mph on the streets around the two schools.
The change will affect Lindley Street, Queen Anne Avenue, Academy Place and Main Street around Roosevelt Elementary and Jackson and Summit streets around Jackson Elementary.
"Those will revert to normal residential streets," said Medford police patrol Lt. Bob Hansen. "That will remain in effect as long as the schools are closed."
The fate of the Jackson and Roosevelt campuses is unknown.
The Medford School Board will appoint a task force Tuesday to study and recommend whether to renovate, demolish or replace the structures.
