[January 15, 2014]  The city of Lincoln will submit a grant application to the Illinois Department of Transportation for the Safe Routes to School program and is requesting the public's input regarding routes to be upgraded.

The Illinois Safe Routes to School program supports projects and programs that enable and encourage walking and bicycling to and from school. The program applies to schools serving grades kindergarten through eighth grade. Projects must be located within 2 miles of a K-8 school.

For this grant application, the city will focus on improving routes around Northwest School by adding new sidewalks and replacing deficient sidewalks. However, the city is seeking input from all areas of the city to assist in the development of current and future programming.
