PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) The South Dakota Department of Transportation awarded close to a million dollars in grants to nine South Dakota communities through the DOT’s Safe Routes to School program. Centerville received the largest award of just over $205,000. Other community awards included $20,195 for Highmore. Applicants had to create ways to address specific safety issues for school children. The programs are to focus on ways to encourage biking and walking–and improve existing bike and pedestrian routes through various infrastructure like bicycle racks and sign and crosswalk improvements.
