Plainfield schools to develop travel plan

Rutgers Graduate Student Planners wearing reflective vests and carrying clipboards began a walk assessibility last Friday at Plainfield High School and Evergreen Elementary School to evaluate the safety of the routes the children take to and from school in Plainfield.

The graduate student planners are part of the first district-wide travel plan that Plainfield Public Schools will participate in, in partnership with the New Jersey Department of Transportation, Rutgers University, EZ Ride/Meadowlink and the City of Plainfield. The purpose of this project is to develop a districtwide travel plan that will ultimately make it safer and easier for students to walk and bicycle to school and that would become the model for improvements in bike and pedestrian infrastructure in districts across the State of New Jersey.
