NRMPS School Dismissal traffic for 9/12/12 likely to be impacted by DeMuth funeral service
Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools parents and students will likely be affected by traffic delays associated with the funeral service for Highway Patrol Trooper Bobby DeMuth on Wednesday, September 12.
Extremely high traffic volumes are anticipated both before and after the service and will
affect all school related afternoon dismissal traffic, including buses, car riders, day care vans and student drivers.
Affected schools in the Rocky Mount area include Rocky Mount High, Edwards Middle, Englewood Elementary and Winstead Avenue Elementary. Traffic on Winstead Avenue
from the Highway 64 Bypass to Bethlehem Road, including adjacent streets, will be heavy in
and around Englewood Baptist Church.
School traffic in the Red Oak area, including Northern Nash High, Red Oak Middle, Red
Oak Elementary, Swift Creek Elementary, Hubbard Elementary and Cedar Grove Elementary will have high traffic volumes in and around Highway 43 and on adjacent roads. Highway 43 will be closed to traffic from Turkey Foot Road to North Old Carriage Road for several hours beginning around 1:00 p.m.
The NRMPS Transportation staff is in the process of identifying alternate routes for our afternoon runs, but parents should expect some slight delays.
Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools appreciates parents and community members for their
patience and understanding during this event.
