Traffic Delays Expected as Construction Begins at Fairacres 

Construction at Fairacres Elementary School will begin on Monday, Oct. 11, causing a temporary reassignment for parent drop-off zones, staff parking and a re-routing of busses.  

The project at Fairacres is to improve drainage systems in the front parking lot. Morning drop-off will be temporarily moved to a zone east of the school, and parent parking will be near the soft shoulder of West Picacho. Walking paths are in place and additional security staff will be on duty during drop-off and pick-up times to ease traffic flow. Motorists in the area are asked to slow down and use caution during peak times at the school, between 7:30 and 8:15 a.m. and 2:15 to 3:15 p.m. Monday through Friday.  

The drainage improvement project is expected to wrap-up in March 2022.  

Construction of a new multi-purpose room, kitchen and additional classrooms at Fairacres is expected to begin in December and be completed in June 2023.
