People who live in Washington have an opportunity to help create a vision for a transportation system that supports all modes of travel – including walking, biking and rolling.

The Washington State Department of Transportation is updating the state active transportation plan, which serves as the needs assessment for accessible pedestrian and bicyclist connections, and public input is needed.

An online open house is available now through Sunday, Dec. 15, at WSDOT-ATP-Online-Open-House with a questionnaire to collect input from Washington residents.

WSDOT will also host virtual events during which staff will share information on the safety, mobility and accessibility issues the plan is intended to address. Those who are interested can register at WSDOT-ATP-Virtual2019. Participants will be able to submit questions and comments using the chat function in the presentation software. These will be recorded and available online after the presentations.

Virtual events

• 12-1 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 26

• 7-8 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 11

Washingtonians are invited to sign up for the plan’s email newsletter to receive future event announcements: WSDOT-2019-ATP.

Community events open to the public that WSDOT staff are attending are listed on the Community Events and E-News page of the online open house. This list is updated as new events are added.
