WSDOT Online Active Transportation Plan and map resource

This outreach came in from Washington State Department of Transportation.  It should be of interest to those of you who would like to investigate and perhaps comment on plans the State is working on to enhance and improve Active Transportation.  If you go to the online open house I would especially recommend following the link to the maps being developed to show “Level of Stress” for pedestrians and bicyclists on State routes and major highways.  They are interesting to investigate and could be useful resource for planning walking and bicycling activity for places you might like to go and are unfamiliar with.   There is also an option to submit comments.

Washington Active Transportation Plan

Visit us online! 

Our online open house is now live and ready for you to read and respond by Nov. 30. What you'll find there:
  • Upcoming events where you can talk with WSDOT staff about active transportation
  • Our state routes analysis: How we're creating decision-making tools to help us identify and prioritize future changes
  • Maps for your feedback: State routes color-coded by Level of Traffic Stress (LTS) and a form for your comments about what you think of this approach. (What is LTS anyway? We explain in the online open house.)
  • A questionnaire that asks:
    • Information about you to help us understand whether we have received responses from a sample that represents all Washington residents.
    • What you do for transportation
    • What prevents you from using active transportation more often
    • What would make it more likely that you would walk, bike or roll
    • What’s unique about your community or region
    • What’s most important for government to focus on for future changes to the transportation system that affect walking, bicycling and rolling
