Feasibility Study: The Work in Progress
The study describes a seamless network of safe and scenic routes for non-motorized traffic that reconnects the community to places it wants to go – whether to work, school, shopping, business, parks or historic sites. The feasibility study prescribes the steps that need to be taken on the various routes to make them safe. For some routes it’s just the addition of “share the road” and other safety signs, for others it’s creating a smooth and even shoulder or bike lane, and other places it requires a side path or a separate trail. A few routes are already safe and just require the usual pedestrian, bicycle safety measures. We coordinate with everyone from government officials to local individuals. We'll keep you posted on progress and you keep cycling and walking! In the US in the late 1960's nearly 50% of children walked to school; a long term goal of the study is for safe routes to walk and bike to school.
