Here’s a picture of a raised crosswalk that exists in Alpine, UT (yes, it can be done) to remind you that Provo City’s Transportation and Mobility Advisory Committee meeting is today at 12:30pm and the committee members will be reviewing Public Works’ new Transportation Master Plan. The public is welcome to attend but not to comment.

This Thanksgiving we’re thankful for the hardworking first responders and snowplow drivers of @provocity. With two major fires, a rollover crash and power outage, and lots of snow to plow, they’ve been busy. To say thanks, we plowed the bike lanes at Cougar Boulevard. We didn’t have the nice snowplow ATV they have so we did it by hand with shovels, but it worked out. People will be glad tomorrow to have a clear bike lane. @provopolicedepartment @provofirerescue

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.
