Case Study: Huntingdon, Tennessee

Huntingdon is a small town in a rural community in Carroll County, Tenn., that is working with Huntingdon Primary School, a kindergarten through third grade school, and Huntingdon Middle School, a fourth through eighth grade school, to create a safer pedestrian and bicycle environment for its children. The schools are less than one mile from each another in downtown Huntingdon. In fall 2007, the State of Tennessee, through the Tennessee Department of Transportation, awarded $250,000 in federal Safe Routes to School (SRTS) funds to the Town of Huntingdon for Huntingdon Primary and Huntingdon Middle. With this grant money, the Town of Huntingdon will construct sidewalks, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessible ramps and mark crosswalks near Huntingdon Primary School and Huntingdon Middle School.
