Menard Traffic Re-routing Trial

Dear Resident ,

Molloy Education Center services children with special needs/disabilities.  Additional time is needed for these children to load and unload school buses safely. We have received numerous complaints regarding motorists passing the school buses while their stop arms were activated.

With the children’s safety a top priority, the Morton Grove Police Department is conducting a traffic re-routing trial, and will be shutting down Menard Ave between Carol and Capulina during bus drop off and pick up times.  Traffic will need to detour around the affected area. This trial will be in effect for 90 days, April 21st – June 7th closure times will be 8:40-9:00a.m. and 2:50-3:00p.m.  June 21st-July 21st  closure times will be 8:40-9:00a.m. and 1:25-1:40p.m. After the trial period we will reevaluate taking resident feedback into consideration.

We thank you for your patience and understanding as we try to ensure the safety of the children.

Michael Simo
