Safe Routes to School

This project will have both proactive and reactive elements. The project staff will be very proactive in coming up to speed with the latest safe routes to school (SRTS) information from around the country and will then actively advertise the availability of the support services to school systems around the state. However, successful SRTS programs almost always have a local champion who promotes community buy-in. The purpose of this project will not be to "sell" the program in the sense of trying to convince communities to start a program or make use of the support services. So some tasks will be implemented on an as requested basis once a local agency notifies us of their need for the services of the project team. With this in mind the project has been broken out into eight distinct but related tasks. Each task will be implemented in coordination with the efforts of the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) SRTS program staff.
