Blix and Stanley Safe Routes to School

Project Description

The project will improve safety for students at Blix Elementary and Stanley Elementary Schools by adding ADA compliant directional curb ramps and ADA compliant bulbouts at existing pedestrian crossings; rectangular reflective flashing beacons at crossings for S. 38th Street (Blix Elementary) and S. 15th Street (Stanley Elementary); and controlled driveway access (Blix Elementary only). Infrastructure improvements will be enhanced by providing education to students, staff, and parents through incentives and encouragement.
