Safe Routes to School Signs and Lines/Infrastructure Launch Information Session

12 p.m. - 1 p.m.

Overview   of Safe Routes to School Signs and Lines/Infrastructure Launch Information Session

The SRTS Signs and Lines Program provides design services and up to $10,000 in construction funding to selected municipalities for a low-cost infrastructure project around a public elementary, middle, or high school. The goal of these projects is to eliminate small barriers that students encounter when walking, bicycling, or using a wheeled mobility device to get to school. Examples of a Signs and Lines Project could include the purchase and installation of new signage or pavement markings. This is a reimbursement-based funding program; MassDOT reimburses the municipality for eligible spending after the project is complete.

The Safe Routes to School Infrastructure Grant Program helps fund bicycle and pedestrian improvements on a larger scale that the Signs and Lines Program cannot cover. Infrastructure projects seek to improve safety, access, and mobility for students in kindergarten through twelfth grade, while also encouraging more students to walk, bike, and roll to school. Projects must be within two miles of a school in the public right-of-way or along publicly accessible bikeways and pedestrian pathways and trails.

For both programs, eligible schools must be partnered for at least six months at the time of application.
