Provo City and BikeWalk Provo Conduct Bike and Walk Count

Awkward stalker photo from another community’s bike/ped count

In early September, Provo City joined other communities around the US to count people biking and walking as part of the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project. The goal of the project is to provide estimates of people biking and walking in a certain area as well as track changes over time.

We hope to work with Provo City on this next year (and the year after, and the year after…) and see an increase in the number of people biking and walking as our community builds more compact, mixed-use development as well as quality bike infrastructure.

If you’re a data nerd, you’re going to love this data.

Tomorrow morning Bulldog Boulevard will become Cougar Boulevard in a special renaming ceremony at 9:30 a.m. at the corner of 1230 N and Canyon Road. Join Cosmo, President Kevin J Worthen and Provo City Mayor Michelle Kaufusi in celebrating the redesigned stretch of road that leads to the entrance of campus! Snack on a Cougar Tail and add your name to history by signing the road. It will be a fun way to show your support and enthusiasm for the dedicated bike lanes along this new transportation corridor to campus!
