It is not exactly the "traffic-grid" lock of Los Angeles or New York, but a good chunk of South Fargo tomorrow morning may resemble the traffic nightmares we often pride ourselves on "not having." Tomorrow morning, 1,500 students will try to drive to Shanley and the new Davies school using the same route. The only route open because of wide spread construction.
It's not perfect, but 25th street south of 52nd Avenue is open, and tomorrow, it will be the only route for the 1,500 students headed to Shanley and Davies High School in the morning. Here is the problem. There is construction on a good chunk of South University, so that is not an option. Coming in from the south side will not work, since 76th Avenue is shutdown for paving. So until things open up late next week, the city says the only way into and out of Shanley and Davies, will be 25th streets, which still has cones and signage on it from recent work.
Dr. Rick Buresh – Fargo School Superintendant: “it is going to take a few days for traffic patterns to form and get kids and parents to figure out what it the most efficient route in and out and we have to let that happen.”
Classes start at 8am tomorrow. So expect heavy traffic in that area from seven on. And this advice. This part of 25th street is no straight shot - Three round-a-bouts, so if your son or daughter is driving to school, might be time for a quick refresher.
