Eagan Safe Routes to School Plan

Minnesota Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is a statewide effort to make it safe, convenient, and fun for all youth to walk, bike, and roll to school and in daily life. Walking or biking to, from, and during school is an easy way for students to get exercise, stay healthy, and arrive at school ready to learn.
 
The Eagan School District has been awarded planning assistance from the Minnesota Department of Transportation to create a SRTS Plan for Eagan High School, Dakota Hills Middle School, and Northview Elementary School.
 
The plan is being developed throughout the 2020-2021 school year as an extension of the work completed on the Diffley Road and Braddock Trail improvement projects. Once complete, the plan will provide direction and recommendations on how to improve walking and biking for Eagan students.

This page is a one stop shop for your community’s Safe Routes To School plan. Below you will find information on what it’s all about, three ways to provide your ideas, and fun and interactive activities for your family.
