Magnolia Ave. traffic flow and parking impacted by high school construction

View up Magnolia Ave. of construction fencing and affected parking during 2019 construction of the PHS STEAM and Theater buildings.

Construction crews installed fencing around the high school on April 1, marking the beginning of work to demolish the Alan Harvey Theater on April 13 and construct a new “STEAM” building for the study of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics on the theater site.

Piedmont residents should be aware that it will not be possible to pick up or drop off students at the high school main entrance, traffic flow on Magnolia Avenue will narrow, and 22 parking spots on the street are temporarily unavailable. In general, the changes are expected to stay in effect through the fall of 2021.

After the STEAM building is completed in the summer of 2020, the District will demolish the adjacent PHS administration building (also known as the “10s” building), which houses classrooms and offices, and build a new performing arts building (housing a new Alan Harvey Theater and classroom/rehearsal space) on the 10s site.

You can get updates on the traffic plan and the construction timeline on the Measure H1 website under “Background & History”
