The City of Dublin is making progress on the intersection improvements at Avery Road and Muirfield Drive. 

 

On Thursday, April 2, 2015 Avery Road will reopen to traffic. Tullymore Drive traffic will be rerouted to Tara Hill Drive/Wexford Woods Drive.  Drivers can take Tara Hill Drive as an alternate route. The Tullymore Drive detour is expected to be in place for approximately two to three weeks. 

 

The Avery Road detour, west of the Muirfield Drive intersection, will remain in effect until Thursday, April 2. Drivers can take Tara Hill Drive as an alternate route.

 

This is part of a larger project that will also include improvements to the intersection of Tullymore Drive and Avery-Muirfield Drive and median modifications along Avery-Muirfield Drive. Separate left turn lanes will be added on Avery-Muirfield Drive for Avery Road and Tullymore Road.

 

Lane restrictions on Avery-Muirfield Drive will occur intermittently throughout the project duration. The improvements are scheduled for completion in May. 

 

Electronic message boards and detour signs will be posted.

K-4 Canyon Author Visit

Local children's book illustrators, Jeannette and Christopher Canyon visited our school on Tuesday, March 24th and shared their art and music with our students in kindergarten through fourth grades. All classes enjoyed learning about the artists and seeing how they created their art work.  Jeannette shared how she creates her pictures using polymer clay and a variety of unusual tools. Christopher shared the steps he takes in creating his watercolor illustrations and sang songs from his books that were inspired by the music of John Denver.  Our students and staff enjoyed singing and clapping as Mr. Canyon sang and played his guitar.  The Canyons both added a drawing and their signatures to our library wall of authors and artists who have visited our school. It was a wonderful visit!
