Welcome to the East Allen County Schools’ monthly construction update. Following my last update, I received many inquiries concerning what the New Haven High School and New Haven Intermediate School finished project would look like as well as the projected traffic flow.

Finished project. The below architectural rendition depicts the appearance of the final project.

Traffic Flow. Buses enter and exit the south entrance; patrons/students/staff coming from the south or going south, enter and exit the south drive; and patrons/students/staff coming from the north or going north, enter and exit the north drive. The drop-off/pick up for students is on the north side of the building (see diagram below.)

Turf Field. Construction of the turf football field will begin in early June and be ready for the mighty Bulldogs’ next football season. The updated John Young Field promises to be a source of Bulldog pride!

Finished project. The below architectural rendition depicts the appearance of the final project.

Traffic Flow… Patrons enter and exit from Homestead Drive; regular buses enter from Williams Street and exit College Avenue; special buses for students with disabilities enter from Homestead Drive and Edwards Street to drop off on vacated Prospect Avenue and then exit via Williams Street or College Avenue (see diagram below.)

Thank you for supporting this project! See you next month for your monthly update to YOUR New Haven Schools.

Bob Nelson
President, East Allen County School Board of Trustees.
