Audubon Charter School receives Safe Routes to School grant

posted Oct 31, 2012, 1:47 PM by UTNA Secretary
As part of the effort to encourage safer routes for students to walk to Audubon Charter School, sidewalks will be repaired along two designated routes that include Pitt, Pine, Garfield, Lowerline, Prytania, and Hurst Streets. High-visibility crosswalks will be installed at the four corners of the school's campus, flashing school zone beacons will be installed at the existing school zone signs on Broadway and S. Carrollton, and pedestrian countdown signals will be installed at the intersection of St. Charles and Broadway. In addition, the plan also includes curb extensions at the intersection of Broadway and Garfield and Hurst, striping for parking and no-parking zones surrounding the school block, and ADA compliant curb ramps at each of the four intersections. This program is funded by the federal Department of Transportation.
