Construction Begins on Taft Elementary Safe Routes to School Project


Thursday, July 20, 2017

On Thursday, July 20, construction began to improve infrastructure around Taft Elementary.  Sidewalks will be replaced where necessary, curb ramps will be installed to meet ADA-compliance, and new sidewalks will be installed on Homestead St.  The improvements were funded by a grant to the City of Youngstown through the Ohio Department of Transportation Safe Routes to School program.  Improvements will be complete for the start of the 2017-2018 school year.  Funding has been secured to address issues at additional schools in the next few years, including Harding, Williamson, and McGuffey Elementary Schools.
