Safe Routes to School Plan
The MPO prepared a Safe Routes to School Plan for USD 475 in 2018. This fall the MPO will work with the City and School District to update the Plan.
A related project, the State Transportation Innovation Council (STIC) Project, will install a series of semi-permanent roadway improvements to increase safety for pedestrians and bicyclists. Each of these will be located near an elementary school. For more about this project, visit our STIC project page.
The 5 Es of SRTS Plans
Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is a federally-funded program that aims to make walking and biking to school safer for children. To ensure successful assessment and implementation of the SRTS Plans, there are five areas of focus, called the "5 Es", included in each plan.
