BELLEFONTE — Badger Lane is no longer one-way.
Tuesday night, Borough Council rescinded a temporary restriction it imposed in August on the street, which is between East Bishop Street and East High Street.
Citing safety concerns about children playing in Badger Lane, the council issued a 90-day trial that allowed traffic to go north. Or, traffic could turn onto Badger Lane from Bishop Street, but no one could drive south on Badger Lane to exit onto Bishop Street.
The move angered residents, a number of whom showed up at the Borough Council meeting Tuesday. Some thought borough officials were too hasty in making the lane one-way last month.
The first thing council did Tuesday was to rescind the one-way restriction.
Councilman Paul DeCusati said the boroughs streets committee also had recommended rescinding the limit.
Resident Jackie Douty told the council she had a petition with 113 signatures against the one-way restriction.
She also said the one-way restriction made it so she had to loop around nearby streets to get to her garage, which is on Badger Lane.
