Knight Street Sidewalk Project

Knight Street Sidewalk Project

Project Details:

Eight blocks of Knight Street, east of C.R. Anderson Middle School (Cleveland to Benton Ave), has been identified as a “safe passage project” by the City of Helena. City safe passage projects focus on creating pedestrian-friendly infrastructure to support safety and accessibility in areas that lack such assurances. This section of Knight Street is a heavily traveled pedestrian route, especially by students and is without consistent, accessible sidewalks. The proposed project is similar to the federal “safe routes to school” initiative, but due to lack of federal funding, will be funded at the local level.  

Take our Knight Street Survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KnightStreet. This survey is unscientific in nature but is a tool to help us better understand the needs and preferences of the community. Projected time to complete this survey is 10 minutes. By completing a government survey, it is subject to public record laws.
