The City of York announces to residents and visitors that effective Monday, March 9, 2020, the current northbound traffic flow of South Cherry Lane, between West Hope Avenue and West College Avenue, has now changed southbound. Due to West Hope Avenue being one way east, the only way to enter is now off West Princess Street heading south.
This change was made specifically for the students of Holy Trinity Catholic School. The current configuration causes young children to exit buses into traffic. Reversing the traffic flow of this half block will vastly increase the safety for these students, while causing minimal impact to traffic.
In addition, the timing of the green light at the intersection of South George Street and West College Avenue will be extended to allow for better flow of traffic. The timing extension will also improve the traffic flow during the arrival and departure of York High School students.
