In 2011, the Lexington Sidewalk Committee’s Safe Routes To School (SRTS) program, Lexington Public Schools (LPS), and Lexpress conducted a survey to better understand how well our present public school transportation system serves the needs of our students. See the results (PDF).
Bowman School Follen Neighborhood Sidewalk Project
This project substantially improved walkability in the Follen Hill neighborhood by the installation of sidewalks, ADA-compliant ramps, crosswalks, and pedestrian signage on Philip Road, Lantern Lane, Dawes Road, Buckman Drive (between Dawes and Locust), and a small part of Locust Avenue (just past the Follen Road intersection.)
Secondly, safety on the existing crosswalk at the intersection of Worthen Road East and Pleasant Street was significantly improved and an additional crosswalk with ADA-compliant ramps and signage was installed at the intersection of Worthen Road East and Philip Road.
