Safe Routes to School

The purpose of the SRTS Plan is to improve the current system to allow children/students to get to and from school in a safer manner.

The Breckenridge Active Living Committee has received a State Grant for a Safe Routes to School project and has put together a plan for engineering consideration. The current SRTS plan includes some of the following: sidewalk design, curb-gutter and asphalt cutting and removal, tree removal, storm drain design, signage, etc.

Wayfinding Signs ~ 2022

Wayfinding Signs.jpg

The wayfinding signs are helpful for people of all ages and are located in the highest traffic areas in Breckenridge. The signs will help inform visitors who might be coming here for baseball games, golfing, etc. and will also help remind our local residents that there are outdoor activities available for exercise and socialization.

The purposes of signage is to promote, identify, provide information, give directions or to raise safety awareness. Adding this signage to show residents and visitors what Breckenridge has to offer will not only promote and give direction to a few of the amenities located in Breckenridge, but will raise awareness for safety to possible extra pedestrian traffic.

Highway 75 Walk/Bike Path ~ 2018-2020

The Breckenridge Active Living Committee has received grants to get a walk/bike path along highway 75 to the CHI St Francis. This project was chosen from a public forum meeting held in 2011. This path is a 10-foot wide paved surface. This trail is just the beginning and the largest piece of a connecting network throughout the communities we are trying to implement.

  • Trails provide opportunities for increased physically activity.  Research shows exercise and being outside can improve mood and overall health. Building a better community!

  • Trails promote economically vital communities, and alternative modes of transportation. Allowing all ages to travel safely.

  • Trails have been considered one of the most important amenities for potential homeowners when moving into a community.

  • Trails provide a valuable amenity that can increase housing values.

  • Trails revitalize neighborhoods.

  • Trails can build or add more to local businesses with pedestrian traffic and visitor interest.
