Franklin County High School student drivers will have to follow a new traffic plan when they return to school this week.
During morning arrival, students should enter the FCHS student parking lot from Hiawatha Trail in the Indian Hills subdivision.
As they leave in the afternoon, students must line up at the west end of the building on the two-lane access road between FCHS and Elkhorn Middle School until buses finish exiting.
Hiawatha Trail will not be accessible in the afternoons.
The traffic changes are necessary because of construction on the new Franklin County Career and Technical Center.
Parents who are dropping their children off at school will see no changes. Teachers and buses will also follow last year’s plan.
Maps detailing the changes can be found online at state-journal.com.
