Elementary school students in Chattahoochee County will have a safer way to walk to school, thanks to a federal grant.

The project for the Chattahoochee County Education Center, scheduled to be finished by July 31, comprises crosswalks, signs, lighting and additional sidewalks. Robinson Paving Co. of Columbus won the contract with the low bid of $444,096.

"This is something that will benefit the citizens of Chattahoochee County and, more importantly, improve the safety of our children," said Jimmy Martin, the school district's superintendent.
