Road Construction to Impact Traffic First Week of School

Due to planned road construction, drivers can anticipate possible traffic delays for J.O. Combs Unified School District sites as they transport students to school, starting July 31, 2019. Families who attend Ranch Elementary should anticipate delays on Kenworthy Road, where thetwo northbound lanes and the one southbound lane will be open but will contain barricades helping direct traffic. Northbound drivers attempting to enter the Ranch Elementary site will use a turn-in lane on the far right while the other lane is for through traffic. Overflow parking for parents will be available in the lot located north of Ranch Elementary. Drivers wishing to park in this overflow lot and escort their child into school are instructed to remain in the left northbound lane. The one southbound lane will remain open.
 
Parents and students who attend Combs High School are encouraged to avoid Kenworthy Road and use detours on Ironwood, Coyote, or Schnepf Roads to minimize delays.
 
Due to the road construction and increase in first day of school traffic, drivers are also encouraged to be mindful of the high volume of pedestrians and obey all personnel helping to direct traffic. The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office will also have increased patrol in this area due to the congestion and road construction.
