HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Walking to and from school is about to get safer for students at Southside Elementary in Huntington.

City Council adopted a resolution Monday night that will allow the city to accept a $130,000 grant from the West Virginia Division of Highways.
It's part of a Safe Routes to School Initiative.

The money will be used to make improvements to sidewalks, install more lighting in the area and safe passages areas to encourage students to ride their bikes to school.
