Please note the following traffic advisory:
Construction will be starting this week on Ralston Avenue and South Avenue.  With some schools out early on Wednesday, you may anticipate longer than usual delays with extra traffic.
 
The information below is for your faculty, parents, and anyone that may have been missed from our notification list. Please forward as you see the need.
 
Starting Monday March 12th, the contractor McGuire & Hester will start work on the South Road traffic signalization and pedestrian walkways project between the hours of 9:00 AM 3:00 PM. The contractor will be closing the right lane at this intersection, and traffic control measures will be in effect. Please anticipate delays. The Crystal Springs Upland School, in collaboration with the City of Belmont are implementing improvements to the intersection at South Road and Ralston Avenue. Improvements are intended to improve the Ralston Corridor traffic efficiency with the installation of pedestrian walkways and signalization. The project entails the construction of a new traffic signal, pedestrian improvements, and bioretention for storm water treatment. The signal will be connected to the City's interconnect system. In addition, the configuration of the intersection will be slightly modified which will eliminate the existing dedicated right turn lane from South Road. The project is anticipated to be completed by end of July 2018.
