Lister Elementary School Safe Routes to School Project

This project is currently suspended due to beacon and pedestrian poles being on back order. Work is anticipated to resume in June 2019.


Project Description

The project will improve safety for students by relocating and improving a school crossing, installing school zone flashing beacons, and improving bus/parent access in front of the school. Infrastructure improvements will be enhanced by providing education to students, staff, and parents through incentives and encouragement, as well as increased enforcement by local law enforcement.
