Plans move ahead to make students walk to school safer in Spring Valley

Posted by wlpo on February 16, 2016

While $3,500 is a chunk of change, you could argue its worth spending to keep children safe walking to and from school.

According to the NewsTribune, the Spring Valley City Council has decided to transfer that amount of money from its motor fuel tax fund to help pay for flashing crosswalk lights on Route 6 and Richards Street along with new sidewalks leading to JFK Elementary School. The city received a “Safe Walks to School” grant to cover $77,000 of the project.

An engineer for the city says the plans are approved by the state and bid letting should happen soon.
