CCUSD, City Create New Traffic Patterns to Enhance Safety Near High School Complex

Posted by Geoff Maleman on May 20, 2015 at 11:41am 0 Comments

Working with the City of Culver City and the Culver City Police Department, Culver City Unified School District is implementing new traffic patterns on Elenda Street in front of the Culver City High School and Middle School complex.

 

“We know pick-up and drop-off times in this area can be busy and chaotic,” said Superintendent Dave LaRose. “Our primary concern is student safety, and we believe the new traffic patterns will encourage drivers and pedestrians to co-exist more safely. We encourage parents and others driving through the area during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up times to pay special attention to the new patterns.”

 

Effective immediately, drivers heading south on both Garfield and Franklin can only turn right when reaching Elenda. Parents wishing to drop off their students on the west side of Elenda or in the Farragut/CCMS parking lot must enter the area at Braddock or any street north of Braddock.

 

On Wednesday, May…
