Traffic Safety Project

  • PROJECT OVERVIEW
    The MHS Traffic Safety Project is a series of phases to expand and renovate the current MHS parking lots. The improved traffic flow is designed for easier and quicker drop-off/pick-up plus achieving the main goal of safety for students and visitors. The design allows for walking into the building without having to walk in front of traffic or crossing a street to get to the parking lot.

    The map below highlights the different phases of the MHS Traffic Safety Plan
