North Long Beach Redevelopment has provided a new center median along Atlantic Avenue in front of Jordan High School. This traffic safety feature is designed to discourage students from crossing the very busy major street in front of the school unless they are within a lighted crosswalk.
There is a signal light and crosswalk at the south end of the school, at Atlantic Avenue and 64th Street, as well as the stoplight and crosswalks at the Atlantic Avenue/Artesia Boulevard intersection just north of Jordan High School.
The center median is roughly within the distance between those signal lights and includes a fence down the center of the median, designed to discourage people from jaywalking. In the center of the median, conveniently located at the entrance to the school, is a new "on demand" lighted crosswalk.
