Safe Pathways is the capital improvement element of the SR2S program. This element of the program provides funding for the engineering, environmental clearance, and construction of pathway and sidewalk improvements, including safety improvements at street crossings.
Potential projects identified in Safe Routes Plans have been developed by teams of schools, parents, students and local public works staff in conjunction with the larger SR2S program. Safe Pathways projects will be selected for funding based on performance criteria that focus on improving safety throughout the County.
Although Safe Pathways projects target improvements around schools, they benefit the entire community, creating a safe network of bicycle and pedestrian facilities, enhancing safety and reducing local congestion.
Safe Pathway projects are expected to attract matching funds from other sources and may be used in combination with road funds to accelerate pathway improvements in school areas. Additional input will be solicited in a public forum that includes input from parents, school officials, and other community stakeholders. Specific projects will also be approved by the Transportation Authority of Marin in their Strategic Plan.
Safe Pathways Projects will be selected based on performance criteria that focus on improvingsafety throughout the County. All projects will come from approved Safe Routes plans, supported by parents, school officials, and the local jurisdiction.
