A $25,000 federal grant will fund Dayton’s small-scale safety town, known as a traffic garden, for children in low-income communities to learn about pedestrian and traffic safety through hands-on activities.

The projects are being created to work with community-based groups representing underserved populations to provide safe youth mobility options like walking, biking, or riding a scooter. The Kentucky Office of Highway Safety is partnering with Tri-State Trails on the traffic garden project.

Upon completion, the traffic garden will be used to teach students bicycle handling skills, road patterns and safety precautions in a safe environment that is separated from motor vehicle traffic.
