Traffic Patterns on Cardinal Drive

Parents/Guardians of Scott County Students,

The Georgetown Police Department and City of Georgetown have been working with the Scott County School System in an attempt to alleviate as much traffic congestion on Cardinal Drive during drop off and pick up as possible.  To this end, we are attempting a new traffic strategy.  Starting on the first day of school August 5, 2015, Cardinal Drive will be a one way street flowing south from Long Lick Pike to US25 during the hours of 7:45am to 9:00am and 3:00pm to 4:15pm.  The right lane of travel will be for drop off and pick up for the high school and middle school.  The left lane of travel will be reserved for bus traffic and vehicles wishing to leave the area.

There will be an officer posted at Long Lick and Cardinal Drive as well as crossing guards posted at Cardinal Drive and Cumberland Drive, the main entrance to the high school, the Ninth Grade School cross walk and the bus entrance.  Crossing guards have a difficult and dangerous job and we ask that all motorists obey their directions.

If you are dropping off or picking up children from Scott County Middle School, please stay in the right lane until you get to the entrance of the middle school.  Upon exiting the middle school, please turn right and be mindful of oncoming traffic.  Once you are at the intersection of Cardinal Drive and US25 you may use the right lane to turn right and the left lane to turn left.

If you are dropping off or picking up children from Scott County High School or the Ninth Grade School, please stay in the right lane until you get to the main entrance of the high school.  Upon exiting the high school please turn right and be mindful of oncoming traffic. Once you are at the intersection of Cardinal Drive and US25 you may use the right lane to turn right and the left lane to turn left.

If you have a student with special needs our crossing guards will accommodate you as best they can.  If you have a special needs passenger please inform crossing guards of your needs.

This process is new for all of us and it WILL NOT fix all of the traffic congestion issues.  We ask for your patience as we do the best we can to alleviate as much traffic congestion as possible.

 

Thank You,

 Michael D. Bosse, Chief of Police

Georgetown Police Department
