Safe Routes to School -
Statewide Funded Projects List
The Federal SRTS Program provides Federal-aid highway funds to State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) solely for the purpose of SRTS infrastructure and non-infrastructure projects, and to administer state SRTS programs that benefit elementary and middle school children in grades K-8. Missouri's SRTS Program is administered by MoDOT, however these funds cannot be used for road or bridge type projects. The SRTS program is focused on providing safety improvements, ADA improvements, safety education and encouragement for grade school (K-8) children to be able to walk to school safely.
