A story focusing on the effects of highways on children and schools was recently published on Project Floodlight, an online platform to create and contribute to stories from your community. The story covers how children’s health and learning are effected by school proximity to highway pollution. This issue is especially relevant now, as the proposed highway widening would bring the highway pollutants even closer to schools such as Swansea Elementary, and many others along I-70.
The story, written by Jon Denzler, is in three parts. You can find the first two parts below:
