Are you considering submitting a Transportation Alternatives application this year? If so, here are the top five things to remember for this round:
The Town of Floyd examines downtown roadway and parking improvements with Regional Commission and Virginia Department of Transportation staff. In February, Regional Commission staff presented a summary technical report to Town Council.
Virginia’s statewide multimodal transportation plan update aims to provide a more complete picture of transportation improvements needed in the Commonwealth. The first step will involve developing a new vision that will be informed by a public survey, vulnerability assessment, and data trends.
RIDE Solutions staff once again had the opportunity to support several community events this fall. During Blacksburg’s Sustainability Week, RIDE Solutions worked with local partners to host the bike valet at the end of the Sustainability Week Bike Parade, making it possible for participants to enjoy the farmers’ market after safely docking their bikes.
Virginia is taking steps to address pedestrian safety statewide! In 2016, pedestrian fatalities rose to nearly 16% of all highway fatalities. The majority of incidents occur mid-block on busy roadways that have two or three lanes. Perhaps not as surprising, nearly 90% of crashes occur where a crosswalk isn’t marked.
Transportation planners, engineers, program managers, and local cyclists met on September 28, 2018 for a Multi-Regions Alternative Transportation Social.
