The Bonham ISD will begin closing Nolan Ashmore Drive during the day beginning Mar. 17.
Gates have been set in place and will be locked Monday to Friday from 6:30 a.m. until 6 p.m.
There is a high volume of student traffic walking from the high school to the field house and stadium. For example, during the fall this includes football players, the band, drill team, cheerleaders and P.E. students.
Closing the road will allow them to move safely between sites. Off season football, soccer and track athletes go to the stadium in the winter and spring.
Gates will be open on football game nights, weekends and holidays. Parents may pick up student athletes from the Finley-Oates parking lot east of the stadium after practices.
Student pick-up for the high school is from the circle drive in front of the campus.
