As the first day of school approaches, officials at Canyons District want to make sure parents and students are aware of various construction zones that may delay traffic on the first few days of school. The District urges the use of alternative routes and asks for patience with District Transportation as buses may experience slight delays.
Motorists need to be aware of construction along 700 East. While the project has progressed since spring, and the construction company plans to push traffic through the corridor during school-commuting hours, some delays are expected. Also, construction is underway at 11400 South with the development of freeway onramps. Minimal delays also are expected on 1300 East near Creek Road.
Canyons Superintendent David S. Doty asks drivers to keep an eye out for children walking to school, and join CSD’s efforts to make the start of the school year a safe one.
