APBP Supports Safe Routes to School Expansion Act

Last month, Congressman Anthony G. Brown (MD-04) introduced the “Safe Routes to School Expansion Act” which would expand funding for infrastructure improvements critical to student safety. The legislation expands eligibility under the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) to include projects under Safe Routes to School Programs such as sidewalks, crosswalks, signage and bus stop shelters.

"Safe Routes to School not only encourages kids to bike and walk to school, which improves their health and wellbeing, but these projects are also great for communities by encouraging active transportation for everyone. said Jessica Roberts, President of the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals. "This bill makes building sidewalks, crosswalks and bikeways more accessible for communities who want to make their streets safer."
