Town to improve student drop-off areas at 2 schools
Review/Salina Sialega
Parents drop off students Monday at Del Rio Elementary School, where ingoing and outgoing traffic backs up at the intersection of Road 2 North and Road 1 West, blocking both the entrance and exit to the student-drop-off area. The Town will provide the construction work to improve the student drop-off areas at the school.

Chino Valley Public Works crews will construct improvements to student drop-off lanes at both Del Rio Elementary and Heritage Middle schools.

The Town Council March 11 approved an intergovernmental agreement between the Town and the Chino Valley Unified School District.

District officials approached the Town to engineer and construct the two projects, because the Town has a professional engineering staff and construction crew.

The District will use $200,000 from the district's Adjacent Ways funds, a school district tax which must be used for a school's safe ingress and egress to the school property, or for fire and bus lanes.

The Town constructed a new student drop-off for the Chino Valley High School in 2010 that included curb and gutter, and sidewalks across the front of the school on east Center Street.

Goals include better traffic flow as parents drop off their children at the schools, and a separation of bus and passenger traffic.

"Any parent who drops off kids can attest - there's lots of conflicting movements going on right now," Town Engineer Ron Grittman told the council.

Grittman said basically costs will run $50,000 for the engineer designs and $150,000 for the construction of both projects.
