The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) is conducting and online survey over the next month (May 2012) to gather input on their bicycle and pedestrian plan.
Here’s a description from ADOT:
“Whether driving, biking or even walking, our state highway system is used every day as a means of transportation. As Arizona continues to sharpen its focus on multimodal options, the Arizona Department of Transportation is constantly planning for better transportation solutions, including updating our Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.
A lot has changed since the plan was first established in 2003. As ADOT works to make improvements statewide, the agency is focusing on three main goals: increase bicycle and pedestrian trips, improve bicyclist and pedestrian safety, and improve bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure.
ADOT wants to hear from people all across Arizona about what’s important to them when it comes to getting around by bike or by foot along our state highway system. Community members can tell us what they think by taking part in a survey that will provide feedback on draft goals and objectives for the Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan and identify action items to achieve them.”
ADOT’s online survey will be active until the end of the month and can be found here: www.azdot.gov/BikePedSurvey/.
For those who don’t have access to a computer and would like to request a mailed copy of the survey, you can call (602) 712-8141 or send your request to ADOT’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Program at 206 S. 17th Avenue, Mail Drop 310B, Phoenix, AZ 85007.
Please take the time to make your voice heard and let Arizona know that walking and biking are important to you!
