Thank you to our Service workers for keeping streets clear and safe during our first snow event of the year. As the new year gets underway, we have many exciting changes occurring in Grandview Heights. The City and School have been working hard and communicating daily to plan for the safety of children and residents as construction ramps up at the middle school next Monday, February 10. Over the last week, crossing guards have been directing children to walk on the South side of First Ave for safety, to avoid crossing paths with construction trucks. The sidewalk is now fully closed between Broadview & Fairview for this reason, and I want to emphasize the school’s directives that there should be no middle school drop-offs at the First Avenue parking lot and all drop-off traffic needs to be on Oakland.
Please remember we have many young children walking to and from school and many pedestrians in our walkable community. As traffic and walking patterns change, I cannot emphasize enough the importance of pedestrian and driver safety. Please use caution when traveling through areas in close proximity to children and construction, and do not walk or drive in a distracted manner. Walking maps (also included below) provided by Grandview Heights Schools depict new patterns but I wanted to summarize here:
We at the City are proud to support the School on this project to improve and modernize their Grade 4-12 facilities. Please help us make it as safe a process as possible for children and the general public, whether living or passing through the area. If you have questions or concerns about anything related to the project, please contact Chris Tyo, Construction Superintendent at email@example.com. Thank you in advance for your patience as we support Grandview Heights Schools on this project.
