Temporary Traffic Pattern Change: March 9th-TBD
There will be a temporary traffic pattern change affecting Desert Junior-Senior High School and Irving L. Branch Elementary School. This change will last the duration of the construction project for the intersection at Love Blvd. Please see the attached map for information. Security Forces will be assisting with the traffic pattern changes. Pull your vehicle completely forward on the curb before unloading your students. Please do not leave gaps in the cars as this can hold up traffic on the street. Branch students should enter on the Community Drive entrance and DJSHS students should enter on the second Payne entrance for the least amount of walking. Branch Handicap parking is also available on the second entrance with the DJSHS flow of dropoff traffic. Thank you for practicing safe travel behaviors and your patience during this period.
