Feedback Needed to Develop New NC Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan with NCDOT

August 1, 2012

We all talk amongst ourselves about wanting to stand up for bikes and that cycling as transportation or recreation is important to us. There is now a chance to give the North Carolina Department of Transportation your two cents on the matter!

The N.C. Department of Transportation is in the process of developing a new statewide pedestrian and bicycle plan – and it is seeking the public’s help to craft a vision for the future of biking and walking in North Carolina.The plan, which will be developed by the department’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Division, in collaboration with state agencies and regional, private and industry stakeholders, will examine how to create a safer pedestrian and bicycle network that also benefits the state’s economy, public health and environment.

When completed, the plan will be among the most comprehensive of its kind in the nation.

Learn all about the plan at NCDOT’s website, and share your thoughts and ideas related to pedestrian and bicycle transportation at the plan’s online community forum – www.walkbikenc.com.
