Safe Routes to Schools: Infrastructure Projects

The infrastructure component of the Safe Routes to Schools Program comprises the engineering aspect of the “six e’s” strategy and involves an equity lens as well. This component of the SRTS Program facilitates bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure improvements to benefit students who walk, bicycle, or use a wheeled mobility device to get to school. Infrastructure projects seek to improve safety, access, and mobility for students in kindergarten through twelfth grade, while also encouraging more students to walk and bicycle to school. The SRTS Program facilitates such improvements by providing funding for infrastructure projects.
