Following spring break, two traffic-related changes will take place on roadways surrounding Northwest ISD’s central complex area.

The school zone on F.M. 156, in front of Northwest High School, will change from 35 miles per hour to 30 miles per hour. This permanent change is expected to take place shortly after spring break begins.

Construction in this area is expected to last at least until the end of 2017 for phase 1 of roadway expansion and improvement, but overall construction in this area will last up to three years. To help alleviate traffic issues, a temporary traffic light will be placed at the intersection of F.M. 156 and Texan Drive (the entry road to Northwest ISD central complex schools), with its expected installation to take place near the end of March. This temporary light will eventually be replaced by a permanent traffic light.

Northwest ISD will keep parents and guardians appraised of any changes to roadway conditions around its schools. These notifications will be sent to parents/guardians of affected schools as well as staff, and they will also be posted to the Northwest ISD website when appropriate.

An email of this message was sent to Northwest ISD staff as well as parents and guardians with students attending Northwest High School, Pike Middle School, Hatfield Elementary and Love Elementary.
