New Horizons School is growing, and accompanying that growth is an increase traffic which is causing safety concerns, traffic congestion and parking issues.  Safety concerns include jay-walking, and unsafe driving practices such as making u-turns in Hawkins Crescent, and backing into driveways. Congestion makes travelling along Hawkins Crescent very slow and frustrating for drivers. The congestion and other behaviors such as blocking driveways is also causing frustration in the neighborhood.

In order to address the concerns, a new Traffic Management plan has been created (see map below). The changes are the result of  input and cooperation with the Strathcona Transportation Integration & Safety, Strathcona County Transportation Planning and Engineering, Elk Island Transportation, and our school’s School Traffic Safety Committee.

Please take the time to carefully review the changes and respect them so that student safety is maximized and traffic congestion is reduced.
