Yesterday VERTICES with students from Franklin High School and Rutgers University mapped safe routes to school in Somerset, NJ. Together we recorded the sidewalk conditions, intersections, and visibility of traffic around Pine Grove Manor Elementary School to analyze pedestrian safety in the neighborhood. This is another tool for residents to voice their concerns in an organized and efficient way and empower community members. The information surveyed was plotted by high school and university students participating in the event. To see the map, click here.
