Drivers around Warhill High School might find a bump in their drop-off routines the next couple of weeks.
The school started work on creating a connector between the staff parking lot and the main parking lot, said Eileen Cox, spokeswoman for Williamsburg-James City County Public Schools.
“When complete, it has the potential to improve the flow of traffic into and out of the staff lot,” Cox wrote in an email.
Currently, there is only one way in and out of the staff lot which causes a traffic build-up during busy times of the day.
The area where the connector is being created is just a dirt and grass patch. When it is finished, there will be a paved pathway similar to a driveway that connects the two lots.
The cost for the connector, $59,600, has been in the district’s Capital Improvement Plan, Cox said.
Most of the construction will take place during the day, but Cox said the school does not expect class schedules to be impacted.
Work, which started Monday, is expected to be finished in two weeks.
