SRTS Signs and Lines Program

The SRTS Signs and Lines Program will provide design services and up to $6,000 in construction funding to a selected municipality for a low-cost infrastructure project around a public elementary or middle 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 Signs and Lines Program is accepting project applications from October 1, 2019 to October 31, 2019. The Signs and Lines Guidance Document provides step-by-step guidance on the project eligibility, how to apply, and the timeline for project completion and reimbursement. The Application is a fillable PDF that must be downloaded, completed, and ink signed by all required applicants. All applications must be received via email, fax, or mail by October 31, 2019 at 5:00 PM EDT.
