School buses to resume normal routes

According to the Ketchikan School District, starting Friday, school buses will return to picking up and dropping off students at Houghtaling Elementary and Revilla High School.

Because of construction that has closed a portion of Jackson Street, there is still only one access point to Baranof Avenue, therefore the majority of parking on Baranof, and the Revilla parking lot will be unavailable for parking in order to provide a school bus turn-around and relieve congestion.

Parking will be available at the Latter-day Saints Church parking lot behind Revilla High School, which can be accessed from 5th Avenue.
