    L Street Road Closure and Vehicle Detour Map

    The Bike Pedestrian Coordinator has put together a guide to help students bike to school.  The two links below may be particularly helpful for students who ride between school sites throughout the day.

    Biker/Pedestrian Detour Plans

    L St. Crossing Locations By Date

    Pedestrian and bike traffic coming from the north or south on L St. can use the sidewalk on the west or east side of L St, whichever is open at the time. Pedestrian and bike traffic needing to cross L St. in the east to west direction, can use a safe moving crossing zone that by day will direct residents across L St. at one of three locations depending upon where construction activity is currently taking place. Moving crossing zones are located at Drexel, Alice and 8th St. Additional crossing guards are in place.
