Travel in that area will be affected by backups and delays, especially at school arrival and dismissal. 

Pro Tips:
Consider a carpool. Leave extra time for drop off and pick up. (You can use an app like Google Maps to estimate your travel time.) As you plan your route, please obey all speed limits and drive carefully. We would like to continue to be good neighbors during the construction disruption.
