Creating a Safe Route to School

To respond to increasing safety complaints, the Cody School District hired Morrison-Maierle to design a solution to improve student and visitor safety as they access Cody Middle School. The Cody Sidewalk and Pedestrian Ramp Improvements project included installing ADA ramps and rectangular rapid flashing beacons (RRFB) and adding a new sidewalk.

The project also included new high and middle school bulb-outs, also called curb extensions, to decrease the distance required for pedestrians to cross the road in areas with limited sight distance.

With ADA compliance and the safety of the students being their number one concern, Morrison-Maierle and its partners based their design and construction schedule around the school calendar and came up with a budget-conscious solution that addressed the school’s needs.
