Edited to fix the date. This is not next week, it is 2 weeks away, May 7th. Whoops!
Just passing this along.
Volunteers needed – MORPC Pedestrian and Bicycle Traffic Counts – May 7.
To better understand pedestrian and bicycle traffic trends in the region, and to address the lack of consistent data about these modes of travel, MORPC has partnered with the Institute of Transportation Engineers in conducting ongoing ped-bike traffic counts in the region. With the help of volunteers like you, we are continuing our participation in the pedestrian and bicycle traffic count program. Wednesday, May 7 is the next count date. As usual, we will be conducting two counts – one in the morning (7-9am) and one at midday (11am-1pm). You may volunteer to help with either or both counts. No special skills are required for participation.
For those of you who have not volunteered before, one-hour training sessions will be held on Friday, May 2, at 4:00 pm as well as on Monday, May 5 at 4:00 pm at MORPC. You must attend either one. At these training sessions, you will receive count forms, will be given instructions and can choose the location/s you prefer to count. Count locations are available across Franklin County and we will try to match you to the location of your convenience.
Count Date: Wednesday, May 7, Morning Count at 7 am to 9 am and Noon Count at 11 am to 1 pm. Volunteer for EITHER OR BOTH.
Training Dates: Friday, May 2 or Monday, May 5 at 4 pm to 5 pm at MORPC. Attend ANY ONE.
Please sign up online. Make sure you select the morning and/or noon counts as well as one of the training sessions.
