Pedestrian/Bicycle and Safe Routes to School Call For Projects

100_5100WSDOT has issued a call for projects for their Safe Routes to School Program. The purpose of this program is to increase the number of children walking and biking to school safely. Unlike in previous calls for projects, projects for high schools, in addition to grades K-8, are eligible for grant funds. Applications for this program are due May 5, 2014.

WSDOT has also issued a call for projects for their Pedestrian and Bicycle Program. The purpose of this program is to improve conditions for biking and walking and encourage “complete street” type projects that safely meet the needs of all transportation modes. Applications for this grant program are due May 11, 2014.

There will be an overview webinar on these two grant programs on March 3, 2014 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Visit the Pedestrian and Bicycle and Safe Routes to School Program Call for Projects Webinar page to register. If you are interested in viewing the webinar but not spaces are available, contact Gabe Philips to view the webinar at SCOG.
