With Capistrano Unified School District schools back in session on Monday, August 15, the City of Aliso Viejo is reminding residents that through traffic is no longer allowed via the Awma Bridge Road in Laguna Niguel to reach Wood Canyon Elementary in Aliso Viejo.
The bridge sits over Aliso Creek and connects Alicia Parkway to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and the Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park and Wood Canyon Elementary.
The County of Orange took possession of the bridge this spring and barricaded the connection between AWMA Bridge road and the private Aliso Viejo Community Association (AVCA) service road off Knollwood Road. The bridge is restricted in use for entry and exit to the park, Laguna Niguel Historical Society and church for car, light truck, bicycle and pedestrian access. However, pedestrian and bicycle through access between AWMA Road and the AVCA service road is still available.
Parents taking their kids to Wood Canyon Elementary should be advised of the new traffic pattern planned for the school. Click here to see a map.
