MoDOT Seeks Projects for Safe Routes to School Funds

JEFFERSON CITY -The Missouri Department of Transportation is seeking projects to be funded with federal Safe Routes to School (SRTS) funds.

Applications are due by November 5, 2012. Projects will be selected by a statewide committee of transportation professionals, education professionals, health department officials and walking/bicycling advocates. Awards will be announced in January 2013.

The SRTS program offers up to 100 percent federal funding focused on providing infrastructure, safety improvements, ADA improvements, safety education and encouragement for children to walk to school safely. Eligible projects must be located within a two-mile radius of a grade school (K-8).

Funding for the program is split into two funding categories:

  • Infrastructure projects, including but not limited to - sidewalk improvements, crosswalks, bicycle facilities, etc.,
  • Non infrastructure projects, including but not limited to - walk to school promotional programs, walking school bus programs, bicycle / pedestrian safety education, etc.
