Crossing the street will soon be safer for students at Kerr Elementary.
City council members have approved the addition of a new school zone on Twin Creeks Drive, between Juliet and Astoria. It is designed to provide safe routes to school for children walking to and from the Cumberland Crossing neighborhood.
Changes to school zone locations are needed periodically based on student populations and driving habits. The City of Allen Traffic Division will fund the new signage and flashers.
Allen Independent School District has endorsed this change and has committed to place a crossing guard at the new location. School zone signs and flashers are expected to be installed by the end of the year.
