With Airport Road being a construction zone for the first weeks of the upcoming school year, the City is requesting help with getting this message out to students, parents, and school staff:
During this Airport Road construction phase, people walking and bicycling should only cross Airport Road at the signalized intersections of Clover Basin Drive or Nelson Road. Be sure to press the pedestrian button, wait for the “walk” light, and, even then, check for oncoming or turning traffic before entering the street.
There is also an Airport Road underpass located between Buckthorn Drive and Staghorn Drive; it provides a multi-use pathway to the Eagle Crest/Altona/ Grandview Meadows Drive area.
Finally, everyone driving to school should allow a few extra minutes and be patient while driving through this construction zone. This XCEL gas line replacement project will likely continue at current locations into October, and will continue south to the Diagonal after that.
