GOSHEN A school's decision to cut bus routes this year is having some unintended consequences.

The Elkhart Truth reports that traffic has been so backed up outside Model Elementary School in Goshen, that the school is considering building a new road. They expect the problem to get even worse in the winter months, when more parents drive their kids.

Model faces a unique problem because their drop-off point backs up into city streets and blocks traffic.

The cost to build a new road would be $8,000 to $10,000 dollars.

The problems started when Goshen expanded the walk zones around schools in order to cut transportation costs.
