School’s out, but Safe Routes are in!

The Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program works to increase safe walking, biking, and rolling among elementary, middle, and high school students by using a collaborative, community-focused approach that bridges the gap between health and transportation.

While many schools in the region are celebrating the kickoff of summer, this is a great time for municipal leaders to think about the upcoming school year and improvements that can be made to safety. In Massachusetts, a Technical Assistance application has been made available to help communities apply for SRTS-specific grants. This opportunity is open year-round and applications are processed on a rolling basis.

Additionally, we anticipate the SRTS Infrastructure Project Funding and SRTS Signs and Lines Funding programs to be made available later this summer. These funding programs support design and construction funding for projects that eliminate barriers that students encounter when walking, biking, or using a wheeled mobility device to get to school.

TEC, Inc. has been MassDOT’s trusted SRTS partner for over 16 years and counting. Since 2008, we have received six contract extensions due to strong performance with project delivery. Each SRTS project is required to include complete streets design solutions including sidewalks, shared-use paths, bike lanes, traffic signals, traffic calming, etc.

If you have a project that may qualify under the SRTS program, we encourage you to reach out today. Our experienced transportation engineers have the knowledge and skills to assist your community with these important projects.
