Event description

Description

The Massachusetts Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Program is excited to host its first-ever forum on Engineering! This free forum, held on November 9th, is the perfect opportunity for stakeholders, including planners, teachers, parents, and school administrators to learn about the steps for exploring SRTS infrastructure projects in their communities.

The forum will cover topics including:

  • Tools used to identify built environment needs
  • A beginner's guide to transportation infrastructure around schools
  • A discussion of how a recently installed crosswalk was successfully constructed in Ashland
  • The fundamentals of infrastructure funding
  • The new infrastructure application process

Event Details:

A light lunch will be provided. Space is limited.

Parking for this event is free! Parking for persons with disabilities is available in front of the library and all additional parking is available in a municipal lot across the street.

The Commuter Rail is available into Ashland on the Framingham/Worcester Line. Please contact Kayla at kayla.torgersen@dot.state.ma.us if you need a pick-up or drop-off at the Ashland Commuter Rail station.




Massachusetts Safe Routes to School (SRTS) hosts free half-day forums twice each year for members of the SRTS community to learn about resources offered by SRTS, discuss relevant SRTS topics, and connect with other SRTS communities. The goal of the forums is to provide participants with information and tools for starting, maintaining, and improving SRTS programs. Every forum is open to all members of the Safe Routes to School community including teachers, parents, elected officials, local planners, police officers, school nurses, and others.


Please register each individual attending so that we may have an accurate representation of all attendees.
