The Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Grant Program supports pedestrian and bicycle safety projects such as pedestrian and bicycle paths, sidewalks, providing safe routes from residential areas to schools and transit on state highways, city streets and county roads. The program is two-fold:
1) Pedestrian & Bicycle Safety to address the nearly 400 statewide fatal and injury collisions involving pedestrian and bicycles each year; and
2) Safe Routes to School to address pedestrian and bicycle mobility and safety near schools.
WSDOT, through a criteria based process, has identified cost-effective projects and submits this informational report to the legislature.
