Design for Greenwich’s new Central Middle School has safety upgrades | #schoolsaftey

GREENWICH — Safety improvements for students and pedestrians at the proposed new Central Middle School are being welcomed by the Planning & Zoning Commission and neighborhood residents.

The plan for the new school, which will replace the current 66-year-old structure, will offer a number of traffic and circulation upgrades, the design team from SLAM Collaborative told the commission at a preliminary discussion of the project Tuesday.

“There are significant improvements to traffic flow, on and off campus,” noted Clare Kilgallen, vice-chair of the CMS Building Committee.

The new campus layout would provide a queuing, or stacking, lane for around 60 vehicles, which would allow parents and caregivers to drop off students. Parents now arrange the drop-offs on roads around the school at Indian Rock Lane. 

A special lane would be constructed for buses only, keeping bus traffic separate from vehicle traffic. New “speed control devices,” such as a raised walkways, would also be used to keep cars from driving too fast in the school area. Pedestrian safety features are set to be added around the campus.
