Mich. DOT encouraging students to walk, bike to school

When many students in southwest Michigan head back to school at the end of summer their walk to class will be safer thanks to new grants from MDOT.

Six schools in five counties in west Michigan will use the grants to encourage more students to become healthier and walk or bike to school.

The money will be used to repair roads, sidewalks, and crosswalks near schools like Sylvester Elementary and Bberrien Springs Middle School—a project costing nearly $140,000.

MDOT is partnering with the Michigan Fitness Foundation to get teachers, parents, and law enforcement agencies to also support the project.
