Two construction projects are under way at Springs School.
One will expand the front parking lot to add more spaces and improve traffic flow. The parking lot, which now has 20 spaces, will get an additional 10 to 12 spots.
The second project, the creation of a walkway along Ed Hults Lane near the back of the school, will improve safety for walkers, a particular concern during morning drop-off.
Students at Springs School are finally one step closer to securing a safer route to school.
Earlier this week, New York State Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr. announced that the New York State Department of Transportation had agreed to cover safety improvements planned around Springs School, with the goal of helping to promote safer and healthier alternatives of getting to school and making it safer for everyone to walk or bike in the area.
