Engineering Solutions Guide

The Engineering Solutions Guide for Safe Routes to School covers street design strategies to address traffic safety concerns commonly identified in school areas and along the routes to school.

The guide includes evidence-based strategies that work to keep kids safe by constructing streets, sidewalks, and paths that inherently reduce or eliminate unsafe behaviors and conflicts between drivers and people walking or biking. The guide features 17 fact sheets on engineering solutions’ key features, estimated costs, safety considerations, safety outcomes and opportunities for public art in rural, suburban and urban routes to school.
