VTrans seeks input for On-Road Bicycle Plan, meeting Tuesday night

DSC_0248Nancy Schultz, Executive Director of the VT Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition, sent the following email this morning. According to the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) website, the On-Road Bicycle Plan they are developing will “categorize state highway corridors into several tiers. The tier system will rank the state highway corridors for on-road bicycling based on where bicyclists ride now and where bicyclists want to ride.”

VTrans is providing multiple options for the public to provide input as the agency develops an On-Road Bicycle Plan. There will be a meeting tomorrow (Tuesday, December 9) conducted via all Vermont Interactive Technology (VIT) sites from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. If you can’t participate tomorrow evening, you can comment via the WikiMap and you can find more information on the project’s web site: http://vtransplanning.vermont.gov/bikeplan

VTrans needs to hear from as many bicyclists as possible in order to rank state highway corridors according to desirability and use.

VIT site location information can be found at: http://vtransplanning.vermont.gov/sites/aot_policy/files/Public%20Meeting%201.pdf

Public input is critical to the success of this project. Your participation is encouraged and welcomed.

If you have questions about the particulars, please contact VTrans Planning Coordinators: Sommer Bucossi (802) 828-3884 or Amy Bell (802) 828-2678 or via email: VermontBike@gmail.com

Thank you.
