The goal of this project was to improve safety for students in Worcester, MA. Researching other communities with safety improvements, interviewing stakeholders, and conducting site observations of arrival and dismissal operations helped determine challenges of existing infrastructure. An engineering-based design for a traffic calming measure in the school zone was implemented through a temporary demonstration. Recommendations were also provided to improve the data collection, coordination, and implementation of a Safe Routes to School program throughout Worcester.
