Safe Routes to School: Pinehurst School Traffic Safety Project
Updated January 29, 2015
A series of community meetings have been held to develop strategies to lower vehicle speeds, reduce collisions and make it safer and easier to walk and bike to the new Hazel Wolf K-8 School in the Pinehurst neighborhood.
Issue Identification Meetings – May 2014
Two community meetings were held in May 2014 to review existing conditions and traffic data, discuss toolbox of potential improvements, and hear concerns and ideas from neighbors and the school communities. At these meetings we heard requests for more sidewalks near Pinehurst School, traffic calming on arterial and neighborhood streets, and more marked crosswalks.
