LCPS Campaign to Reduce Road Congestion
Congestion Must Go!
Traffic congestion has increased steadily over the years and is a major issue in Loudoun County; it comes as no surprise that congestion around Loudoun County Public Schools facilities has also increased.
To help alleviate this problem, LCPS has launched a “Congestion Must Go” campaign, focused on minimizing traffic congestion in and around school campuses, surrounding road networks and neighboring communities. The goal of the “Congestion Must Go” campaign is to actively promote bus ridership, walking, biking and carpooling, while increasing student safety.
CONGESTION MUST GO
The Congestion Must Go logo was created by Nicholas Thorne, a senior in 2019 who has since graduated.
JUST THINK ABOUT IT DIFFERENTLY.
