Gov Haslam Announces $1.6 Million in SRTS Grants

Gov. Bill Haslam today announced Safe Routes to School (SRTS) funding totaling $1.6 Million for ten municipalities in Tennessee. The funds will be used by multiple schools to improve sidewalks, crosswalks, signs and safe walking and biking educational activities. The SRTS Program is a statewide initiative designed to make bicycling and walking to school a safer, more appealing and healthier alternative for students in kindergarten through eighth grade.

Cities receiving SRTS funds are: Anderson County, Kingsport, Dyersburg, Lenoir City, Fairview, Lewisburg, Hendersonville, Tullahoma, Jackson, Woodbury

The grants are made possible through a federally funded program administered by the TDOT and is one of the programs that American Energy and Infrastructure Jobs Act cancels.
