Traffic changes coming for 2017-18 school year

Posted by McCallie Communications and Marketing on August 11, 2017

The start of the 2017-18 school year will bring new changes to the McCallie Campus with a new look for Spears Stadium and new traffic patterns for driving on campus.

The most noticeable change will be closing of Kyle Street through the heart of campus from the Middle School to Davenport Gymnasium. This section of campus will now be pedestrian only with no parking allowed. A recent safety and risk study found that the road is a particularly dangerous place with many Middle School boys crossing it (often without looking for oncoming vehicles) each day on their way to and from lunch and activities in the Innovation Lab and other places in the upper part of campus. Closing this section of the road to vehicles willmake that area safer and will allow for a more pleasant experience for boys using that area.
