Case Studies

In 2012, the City of Alexandria undertook a Safe Routes to School (SRTS) project to improve Pedestrian safety at the Charles Barrett Elementary School on Martha Custis Drive. Carrie Sanders' 2013-0515 presentation describes the issues addressed, changes implemented, outreach efforts and lessons learned. The safety benefits are readily apparent in the before and after pictures of the intersection. Follow-up actions to measure other impacts of the project, for example, on percent of students who walk to school, are planned. This project is a great example of the growing number of Bicycle and Pedestrian improvements being made in the City of Alexandria. Well done to Carrie and others in the Transportation Planning Division and ACPS that made this project a success.
