Duluth Safe Routes to School Plan
The Duluth Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Plan examines how safe it is for students in Duluth to access school. The study goal was “to provide safe and adequate routes leading to Duluth schools so that more students are able to safely walk to school.” The study involved analyzing five elementary and middle schools with large walking boundaries and working with a diverse and committed steering committee to identify obstacles along primary routes to school and to propose recommendations to improve safety.
Recommendations were proposed to address each of these safety issues. Some of the primary study recommendations address school site traffic circulation, pedestrian crossing amenities to increase visibility, traffic calming measures on nearby roads, and the importance of sidewalk snow removal.
