School Year Beats Construction Schedule to the Finish Line


Pedestrian Tunnel will not be open in time for start of school

Construction of the tunnel beneath Kearns Boulevard at Comstock Drive will not be completed before school begins on August 26. School and city officials are taking steps to ensure that students will be safe while the project is completed. Temporary fencing surrounds the construction site. The trail on the south side of Kearns Boulevard between Comstock Drive and Buffalo Bill Drive is closed. Crossing guards, flaggers, and crosswalk lights will be at the intersection of Comstock and Kearns. Local law enforcement presence will increase.

School buses will drop McPolin and Treasure Mountain students off at the main entrance of the high school. School staff will be stationed along the path to ensure students navigate the short walk to the schools safely. Parents using Kearns Boulevard and bringing children to McPolin Elementary and Treasure Mountain Middle Schools are urged not to turn at Comstock Drive. Children should be brought to the east high school parking lot or dropped off at the turnout just north of the baseball field on Lucky John Drive. School staff will supervise the walk to the two schools.

Construction may delay and slow traffic. Parents should plan accordingly. Schools will start on time.
