CHATTANOOGA (Times Free Press) - Assistant Principal Michele Reeves has been at East Brainerd Elementary School for five years, and she said she has probably received more questions about traffic than anything else.

"It gets congested," said Reeves.

East Brainerd Elementary sits in one of the heaviest traffic school zones in the county, said Ben Coulter, Hamilton County Schools transportation supervisor. East Ridge Elementary, East Hamilton Middle/High, Soddy-Daisy High and McConnell Elementary schools also are in high-traffic areas, Coulter said.

With public schools back in session, and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga resuming classes Aug. 22, the highways and surface streets in and around Chattanooga are being flooded with thousands of students as well as additional cars and school buses.
