Caltrans seeks community input for Active Transportation Plans

Posted on January 25, 2021 at 8:35 pm by Clay Curtin

Caltrans districts are in the process of updating their Active Transportation Plans and are soliciting input from local communities. The goal of these plans is to identify bicycle and pedestrian facilities on, across, or parallel to the state highway system, with a focus on closing gaps and building complete comfortable networks.

Caltrans District 4, which encompasses the nine Bay Area counties including San Mateo County, is developing a bicycle plan and a pedestrian plan.

Bike Highway Study
The goal of this study is to understand where bike highways may be installed alongside state highway corridors. As part of the initial steps, Caltrans has developed an online bicycle survey soliciting input from the public to assist in defining bike highway priorities and best practices. The survey is available through the end of February. For more information visit the Caltrans webpage about the Bike Highway Study.

Pedestrian Plan: Caltrans recently released the draft pedestrian plan and is soliciting input from the public through an online pedestrian survey. To assist with the review, Caltrans has developed a draft plan summary report and an interactive story map to accompany the survey. The survey will be available through Friday, February 5, 2021. For more information visit the Caltrans webpage about the pedestrian plan.
