Bridgeview Elementary School Travel Planning 2009/2010

New Crosswalk and Curb Bulges

Bridgeview Elementary students walk and bike to school. To increase the number of students walking and biking, Bridgeview participated in School Travel Planning in the 2009/2010 school year, facilitated by HASTe.

Bridgeview Elementary is located at 12834 115A Avenue in Whalley.

Engineering improvements

In 2011, we built curb bulges at the crosswalk on 128 Street at 114B Avenue, and installed speed humps on 128 Street, to improve student safety, raised driver awareness of the school zone, and slow vehicle speeds.

In 2010, we changed the parking regulations on 114B Avenue east of 128 Street to improve pedestrian safety.
