Middle School Temporary Traffic Solution
The District is implementing a temporary solution to address the congestion challenges presented with the existing traffic pattern. Permanent solutions will be provided through the Capital Project work. Beginning on Friday, February 5, 2016, the Middle School’s half-circle former bus loop that is accessed from South Manheim will be opened and used as an additional student drop-off/pick-up area. Vehicles will enter from the south side of the loop, let students out along the existing sidewalk, and exit from the north side. It will be a single-lane, single-direction pattern and vehicles will be able to turn either left or right onto South Manheim. This measure is being put into place to help relieve the traffic back up onto Route 32 South. The current entrance and drop-off/pick-up area and Main Street exit (right turn only) will remain in use.
