Middletown’s Complete Streets Committee is working to make the city’s streets safer and more “friendly” to all users—including walkers, cyclists and users of public transportation.
The committee is organizing a "traffic count" event on September 17 to document the current number of motor vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians at a few key locations in the city. The Committee will use the documentation to secure funding for future projects. The documentation is required.
Middletown's Complete Streets Committee is looking for volunteers to spend 1 hour and 15 minutes, either near Stop & Shop on Saybrook Road or at Macdonough School. The task will be to count (using a form and clipboard, which is provided) all cars, trucks, walkers and cyclists who enter a specific intersection during the given time period. Two volunteers are needed at each location—one to count motor vehicles and one to count other users.
To volunteer call 860-398-3771.
Send us your bike walk related news and time permitting, we'll do our best to post it.
