Newcastle Elementary gives kids extra time to get to class

The city began work to repave a segment of Coal Creek Parkway in mid-August, but lane reductions relating to the project began Sept. 9 and will continue through Sept. 21, weather permitting.

Only one southbound lane and one northbound lane will remain open at all times between Newcastle Way and Southeast 84th Way between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. The city says to expect significant delays.

Newcastle Elementary School is giving kids extra time to get to class due to construction. Students have until 9:25 a.m. to be in their seats without receiving a tardy citation. School starts at 9:15 a.m. and the 10-minute cushion for late arrivals will be in effect until Sept. 20. Read more
