Active Transportation Accounting: Developing Metrics for Project Prioritization
Date: Wednesday, May 15, 2019
Location: NHDOT, Room 114, J.O.Morton Building, 7 Hazen Drive Concord, NH
Registration: Link

    Despite growing interest in enhancing active transportation (e.g. bicycling, walking), little weight is currently given to the need for infrastructure improvements for these modes, largely due to insufficient data. This NHDOT research project, lead by Amy Villamanga of Plymouth State University, will yield a suite of products to enhance NHDOT's capacity to evaluate active transportation activity, provide metrics for project prioritization, and provide effective assessment, maps, case studies, and GIS tools.
