Advisory

RPD-Crossing at Parkview Road.

A New Route to School for Tuesday, January 27th only.

The BNSF railroad will be repairing a signal bungalow at the Hollywood crossing Tuesday January 27. This crossing will be closed from Tuesday at 7:00 a.m. until Wednesday at 5:00 a.m.

School Children that live south of the railroad tracks in the Hollywood neighborhood will be directed to walk east on Waubansee Road, and then north on First Avenue to Ridgewood.

The Riverside Police Department will be assigning an officer to the area of Parkview and First to assist the children safely along First Avenue from Waubansee Road to Ridgewood. “This can be a daunting walk for kids going under the viaduct along congested First Avenue,” said Lieutenant Gutschick.

Lt. Bill Gutschick stated, “Our mission is to provide for their safety by being visible, along with crossing kids north to south over Parkview Road. We need to get them safely to the Ridgewood intersection where the full time crossing guards can get them east across First Avenue towards their respective schools.”

The police department is reminding parents that at no time are students to cross First Avenue to travel east other than at the Ridgewood/Forest intersection. Please have patience as the crossing will be closed one day.
