For the last few months, there has been ongoing road construction on US 460 West. The widening project is near completion and includes a new entrance to the campus shared by Elkhorn Crossing School and Western Elementary School located near the Elkhorn Crossing School sign. This entrance will open soon.
We wanted to make you aware of this change and urge you to drive with caution as fellow drivers become accustomed to it. There will be a turning lane on US 460 for drivers to enter the school campus. Traffic entering the school campus from US 460 will have the right of way and cars are not required to stop upon entering.
Drivers already on campus (entering and exiting the parking lot of Elkhorn Crossing School) will be required stop in both directions to allow traffic to enter safely. The stop signs are new. It is very important that drivers take notice and come to a full and complete stop. As a safety precaution, please make sure student drivers understand and expect this change.
The campus entrance off the bypass near Betsy Way will remain the same. There will be no changes to the student drop off or dismissal patterns at either school.
