Case Study: Lexington, Nebraska

Safe Routes Nebraska is the Nebraska Department of Roads' state-level implementation of the federal Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program. Safe Routes Nebraska and the Department of Roads provide schools and communities across the state with access to almost $1 million per year in funds to build safer routes to school and promote walking and bicycling. One of the successes is a non-infrastructure program run by the Lexington
Community Fitness Initiative (CFI). This program, called the Street and Bicycle Safety Program, received $23,554 in federal SRTS funds for its enforcement and education-based activities.
