Best Practices for Reducing Near-Road Pollution Exposure at Schools

The publication "Best Practices for Reducing Near-Road Pollution Exposure at Schools" helps school communities identify strategies for reducing traffic-related pollution exposure at schools:
  • located downwind from heavily traveled roadways (such as highways),
  • along corridors with significant trucking traffic, or
  • near other traffic or vehicular pollution sources. 

See also the one-page flyer about these best practices.
