Traffic Changes at Tiffany Park Beginning February 5th

Traffic Changes for Morning Drop-Off Begin Wednesday, February 5th To enhance the overall safety during the morning drop-off time, Tiffany Park has partnered with the Renton Police Department and the City of Renton on impending traffic changes. The traffic changes will take effect on the morning of Wednesday, February 5th .

Changes include:

• Vehicles will only be able to make a right turn into the front loop off Lake Youngs Way between 7 am and 9 am.

• Road parking will be restricted west of the school between the parking lot entrance and Jefferson Ct. SE 

• Vehicles heading westbound will not be able to make a left turn into the front driveway loop. The city will be installing a sign prohibiting a left turn into the school lot that will be enforceable by law between 7am and 9 am.

• There will only be a single turn lane into the drop-off loop. Then it will open to two lanes, one for drop-off and one for vehicles that are parking.

Parents are encouraged to plan for alternate routes to school in alignment with the changes outlined above. These changes are expected to make the eastbound queue longer, but school drop-off operations will most likely be smoother and safer compared to the current drop-off operations.

Morning Drop-Off Procedures in the Front Loop

In addition to the traffic changes, there will be changes to the morning drop-off procedures in the front loop. Please read the changes carefully and adhere to them. Safety is everybody’s responsibility, and this will help ensure a safe and efficient morning drop-off procedure for your child and everybody else’s children.

All Vehicles:

Drive slowly and always be prepared to stop
Follow the direction of the front loop attendant and the safety patrol
Stay off your cell phone
There will be a single lane as vehicles enter the loop. Vehicles using the drop-off lane should stay to the right and proceed along the sidewalk. Vehicles parking in the parking lot should turn left into the parking lot and veer to the right with the directional flow of traffic.

Vehicles using the drop-off lane:

Pull all the way up to the crosswalk or as far as traffic permits. Do not stop near the playground to let your child out.
After dropping off your child, merge over into the open lane to allow vehicles behind you to pull forward. Do not exit your vehicle. If your child needs assistance, please park in the lot. If possible, your child should be sitting on the passenger side of the vehicle to allow for quick and safe access to the sidewalk. Vehicles are not permitted to merge into the drop-off lane.

Vehicles parking in the lot:

After entering the loop, make a quick left into the parking lot and stay to the right. This entrance has previously been blocked with cones and will now be open.
Follow the directional arrows that outline the flow of traffic.
Park in a designated spot. Handicap spots are only for handicap parking.
The parking lot is not a substitution for the drop-off lane. If you are only dropping your child off, use the drop-off lane.
