Safe Routes to School

Safe Routes to School

Project: Engineering, Surveying, Planning, Design, Funding

Client: Temple, TX

Contact: Anthony Beach, P.E., CFM

Description:  MRB Group designed the City of Temple’s Safe Routes to School projects for Bonham Middle School and Lakewood Elementary. The projects included placing concrete sidewalk paths at both locations.

MRB engineers prepared construction plans at the Bonham location to convert the on-street bicycle lane into a safe off-street route to school. The project is adjacent to a heavily traveled thoroughfare in Temple, creating one of many design challenges to ensure a safe pedestrian route.

MRB Group also designed safe routes to Lakewood Elementary. The route is adjacent to a busy West Adams Avenue, and there were no sidewalks along this urban highway section for school children to get to school safely. MRB also provided Environmental and Grant Administration services for both projects.
