MAXWELL ELEMENTARY CHANGING UP WHERE STUDENTS GET ON AND OFF BUSES
The drop off and pick up location for buses at Maxwell Elementary School are changing because of safety concerns. In the past, the drop off and pick up locations for both school buses and cars were in the same location.
The location change makes the student drop-off spot for parents more efficient while keeping Maxwell students safe.
“There was a road that goes by the Volunteer Fire Department to the rear of the school,” District 3 Tuscaloosa County Commissioner Mark nelson said. “We’re going to widen that to two lanes, and make a turnaround in the back, so now all the bus traffic will go over there away from the front of the school, so it will make it safer for the children loading the buses, and it will also make it safer for everyone else that’s coming from the front of the school to load and unload.”
Construction began Wednesday and is expected to be completed by the time school begins.
