Safety and Traffic Update, October 12
Dear Flintridge Prep Families,
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has advised us that the westbound I-210 (Foothill Freeway) Berkshire Place on-ramp and Foothill Boulevard off-ramp will be closed for up to 45 days beginning October 30. The closures will remain in effect through November.
We've been in frequent conversation with Caltrans representatives, and we have expressed our concerns about these closures. Caltrans has assured us that they will work as quickly as they can, weather permitting, so that we can all return to normal as soon as possible. We will share updates as we receive them.
In the meantime, to accommodate families, we've temporarily changed our drop-off schedule. Students can arrive as early as 7:15 in the morning, and the library will be open. Here are some additional suggestions.
Caltrans will never close two off-ramps in the same direction at the same time. The westbound Berkshire off-ramp, which is currently closed, will reopen on or around October 27.
