Speed bumps planned near Langley Fundamental Elementary School

The road that runs in front of the Langley Fundamental Elementary School will get three speed bumps and a raised crosswalk this summer.

A report to Langley Township council from the municipal engineering division said that option was selected by more than half the people who attended a February open house on traffic calming for 50 Avenue near 217B Street where it runs in front of the school.

Construction is scheduled to begin this summer and will cost $34,500, the report said.

Langley Fundamental has more than 500 K-to-5 students.

In an online description, the school says it “is an alternate program that has operated for the last 35 years within the public school system” which emphasizes a “consistent, structured approach to instruction and learning … attainment of skills in a systematic, sequential manner [and the] establishment of a clearly defined standard of behaviour.”
