In cooperation with Fayette County Schools, an evaluation of traffic flow and safety was conducted at school sites in Fayette County. The purpose of this evaluation was to identify potential safety risks currently existing at selected schools, recommend actions to reduce risks, and to decrease traffic congestion in and around school properties.

This report is a continuation of the traffic and safety project submitted to Fayette County Schools in September 1996. For this project, three schools were identified by Fayette County Schools as having traffic flow or safety problems that could benefit from detailed evaluation. The three schools were Clays Mill Elementary, Yates Elementary and Dunbar High. The responses to a survey questionnaire were compiled and used in these investigations. An on-site investigation was conducted at these three schools and an evaluation was completed by assessing the current conditions and offering recommendations for improvements. A set of maps was also prepared explaining any changes recommended for each of the school properties.
