This fall, parents dropping their kids off (or picking them up) at Daly Elementary School in Hamilton will have to learn a new lesson - drive to Kurtz Lane and use the new road that heads west from Kurtz to Daly, on the south side of the school building.
As shown in the photo, curbs have been poured and work continues to get the road ready for motorists. The project has been undertaken to try to ease the complicated traffic chaos that happens twice a day at the school - in the mornings and afternoons.
A semi-circular drive in front of the school has also been taken out... to simplify the driving pattern.
Workers have also eliminated the parking spaces in front of the Hamilton School Administration Building, across the street from Daly Elementary. A new parking area and new sidewalks there will also improve the area for pedestrians and cars.
