Bringing Safe Routes to School to the Modesto Airport Neighborhood

The Modesto Airport Neighborhood is a suburban community in the Central Valley that had not historically received much in the way of Safe Routes to School investment and attention. 

In 2018, Modesto was selected to participate in the Safe Routes Partnership’s Safe Routes to School Launch program, which provided free technical assistance and support to help the community develop a comprehensive Safe Routes to School Action Plan. As a result of these efforts and ongoing technical assistance, the neighborhood secured $6.1 million in funding through California’s Active Transportation Program Cycle 4 to fund new sidewalks and bicycle paths.
