Improvements in Phoenix ensure children’s safety

More from this show

Allison Poulos, Assistant Professor at ASU’s College of Health Solutions, discussed recent renovations in Phoenix that ensure safety for children and families. 

After concern for safety, the City of Phoenix and ASU formed a coalition to collect data on major routes children take when walking to and from school. 

The research focused on the stretch from 11th to 19th Ave. This area has a high prevalence of children and families. 

In a survey of parents, their research found that more than 80% of parents were not comfortable with their children walking or biking to school. 

The coalition was able to reduce Osborne from two lanes down to one, creating a safe bike lane.
