“This program plays a key role in increasing safety and promoting healthy lifestyles through active transportation alternatives, which make North Dakota a better place to live and work,” he explained.

The North Dakota DOT – which launched a revamped website in January – said it awards projects each year in local communities to encourage active modes of transportation, including: pedestrian and bicycle facilities, Safe-Routes-to-School projects, community improvement activities, and environmental mitigation projects.
