Want less of this?

Are YOU a CYCLIST or PEDESTRIAN that uses Missoula’s many TRIALS, SIDEWALKS, OR BIKE LANES?  Do you care anything about new sidewalk construction, expanding Missoula’s excellent trails system, or getting more bike lanes stripped around town? If so then your chance to contribute to building a brighter future for Missoula active transportation is fast approaching.  The Transportation Planning  office within OPG needs volunteers to help conduct a non-motorized traffic count on Saturday, September 11th and Tuesday, September 14th.   Sign up to volunteer here, or visit their website for more information.  In addition to the count days a volunteer training will occur on September 9th starting at 5:30 in City Council Chambers and last an hour.

Why are these counts important?  Just as with counting vehicle traffic, counting pedestrians and cyclists helps to determine demand for better on-street and off-street facilities, potential help steer funding of various infrastructure improvements, and helps the county to potential win grants for construction projects or programs.  And if your interested in seeing some of the results from the spring count click here to view a map that breaks down the numbers counted in May.
