Five urban Duluth elementary and middle schools with large walking boundaries were analyzed in this Safe Routes to School (SRTS) plan, including Lester Park, Congdon, Laura MacArthur, and Stowe Elementary; and Lincoln Park School (K‐8).

The study goal was “to provide safe and adequate routes leading to Duluth schools so that more students are able to safely walk to school.”  Students and parents were surveyed to identify safety issues around each of the five schools examined in the plan.

Recommendations were proposed to address each of these safety issues.  Some of the primary study recommendations address school site traffic circulation, pedestrian crossing amenities to increase visibility, traffic calming measures on nearby roads, and the importance of sidewalk snow removal.
