DVRPC Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee Kicks Off

DVRPC's Joseph Hacker and John Ward conducted the first of what we hope are many meetings for the forming DVRPC Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee. While the Bicycle Coalition, Philadelphia, Chester and Montgomery Counties as well as SEPTA and NJ TRANSIT were represented it is hoped that Counties and the State DOT's will come onboard as the committee's work program solidifies.

Topics discussed included working on a update/report card on the 1995 Bicycle and Pedestrian Mobility Plans for SE PA and South Jersey. Submitting policy statements and goals for the DVRPC 2035 Long Range Plan and review of the ongoing resurfacing program in which DVRPC staff is making recommendations for bike lanes or enhanced shoulders on suburban PENNDOT roadways coming up for repaving.
