The grant will also include $10,732 of safety improvements for the Pollard School students, including helmets, bicycle racks and traffic cones.
“We want to improve the visibility of the school zone,” Komornick said. “There will be electronic signs to notify drivers when they enter the school zone.”
Corrigan said he expected the work to be completed by 2015.
“The preliminary work will begin between now and this summer and then they will go out to bid the following season,” Corrigan said.
Corrigan said this is the last time Safe Routes for School grants which will be offered. In the future, the grant will be renamed and only have an 80 percent reimbursement rate.
