The city of Baldwin Park has just received a grant from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) to improve pedestrian safety for students and bicyclists.

A total sum of $235,000 was awarded to the city, to improve its current Safe Routes to School Plan, with a provision to increase bicycle and pedestrian safety.

This plan will seek to concentrate pedestrian student traffic onto designated routes, to provide better security for students walking to and from school.

The project will also provide maps of each school and its immediate neighborhoods with pre-established routes.

It will also count with the participation of agencies such as local police, campus police and other departments, who will help to implement the plan.

The city has to invest $23,500 to complete the project. These funds will come from Measure R, according to a report presented to the City Council.
