Fontana Safe Routes to School Grant Award

Grant funding for Safe Routes to School Program


Fontana, Calif.- The City of Fontana was recently awarded nearly $1.5 million in Active Transportation Program (ATP) grant funding to improve pedestrian infrastructure within the vicinity of Fontana High School, Truman Middle School, and Cypress Elementary School. Construction is expected to begin in Fall 2021.  

The project will enhance connectivity and safety by installing missing sidewalks and street lights in the residential area south of Truman Middle School, as well as designated bike lanes on Citrus Avenue, Randall Avenue, and San Bernardino Avenue. The project will also upgrade American with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant access ramps near the schools.

The project is part of the City of Fontana’s continuous effort to provide safe and easier access for students who walk and bike to school. 

The funding is made available by the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) under the Regional Active Transportation Program.
