Cheryl Curry, with the Pondera Regional Port Authority, is preparing work on a project to increase school area safety in Conrad and Valier.
The project is a product of the Montana Department of Transportation Safe Routes to School. The Port Authority will work to obtain grant funds to work on infrastructure improvements to such things as sidewalks and signage.
The scope of the project will be developed in a cooperative effort between the city, schools and law enforcement.
The project also calls for development of an educational program. For more information, log on to http://www.mdt.mt.gov/pubinvolve/saferoutes/ .
