Safe Routes to School and Bikeability Webinar

When: Tuesday, December 15, 2015, 10-11:30am

Many kids lack safe places to walk and ride bikes in their neighborhoods, prohibiting them from using these healthy and economical ways to get to and from school.

In early 2016, Washington State Department of Transportation will release its Safe Routes to Schools Request for Proposals, totaling $19 million. These grants, which are available to public agencies, can be used to address deficient bicycle infrastructure.

Join Cascade Bicycle Club and experts Charlotte Claybrooke, Active Transportation Program Manager at WSDOT; Peter Lagerway, Principal at Toole Design; and school officials from Walla Walla County to learn how to include bicycle facility design and engineering into your 2016 application in this webinar.

The webinar is free and is sponsored by Cascade and WSDOT. Register now.
