Regular travelers of Griffith Drive will need to find an alternative starting MONDAY.

A Safe Routes to School project installing a pedestrian crossing and refuge median for Northview elementary is planned to begin June 15th.

As a result, Griffith Drive will be closed to through traffic, though local motorists will still have access.

Work is slated to be complete within 7 to 14 days, weather permitting.
