The comprehensive Blach Neighborhood Traffic Study prepared by Fehr & Peers in December 2010 identified a number of recommendations to improve and enhance vehicular, pedestrian, and bicycle traffic in the Blach School neighborhood area. 

In order to enhance the pedestrian and bicycle safety of students accessing Blach Intermediate School, a new Class I pathway on the south side of Covington Road from Miramonte Avenue to Blach Intermediate School is recommended. This pathway would separate bicycle-pedestrian traffic from vehicular traffic and help to reduce wrong-way on-street bicycling.

The project is listed as a Tier 1 improvement, those that have the largest impact to students’ safety and circulation. The total project is estimated to cost $276,000. The design portion includes a necessary survey to ensure drainage of the street and pathway. The cost estimate for the project was prepared by Fehr & Peers.
