Keeping children safe as they travel to and from school is a concern  shared by parents, schools, and the broader community.
The national Safe Routes to School program was created in 2008 to  encourage and enable students in Kindergarten through eighth grade,  including those with disabilities to safely walk or ride bicycles to  school.
As part of the Safe Routes to School program, a $98,000 sidewalk  construction project scheduled to begin on Tuesday, July 5 on State  Route 41 in Peebles is now under way.
“This project was part of the Safeway to School Grant,” said Peebles  Mayor, Victor Warfe. “It has taken two years for this part of the path  to be constructed, and the Village Council and I are looking forward  to the completion of the entire project soon.”
According to Warfe, Pat McCarty and Associates of Hillsboro, Ohio are  the engineers for the project.
Officials at the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) say crews  from Sunesis Construction in West Chester are set to begin  construction on the  section of sidewalks located on South Main Street  between Olive Street and Chautauqua Street.
The project commissioned by the Adams County Ohio Valley School  District includes constructing sidewalks and repairing steps along the  route heavily traveled by students going to and from school.
The Sunesis Construction Company was awarded a contract in June. ODOT  officials say that the construction will have little to no impact for  motorists, and all work at the construction area should be completed by the end of July.
