URBANA -- Picking up students from Wiley Elementary will be different. Parents know this can be a very busy area.

Now, one lane will be closed on Anderson Street. With the change, Anderson, between Florida and Pennsylvania will be one-way. It will be closed for student drop-offs between 7:30 - 8:30 am.

Parents say it's a much-needed change. Police will be on hand to help with the transition. The school sent a note to parents Monday. March 10 is the first day of the change.
