Caltrans seeks public input for pedestrian and bicyclist safety plan along Central Coast

Posted at 6:05 PM, Mar 27, 2019

Caltrans is working on a Central Coast Active Transportation Plan to improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety and they are asking for public input.

Caltrans said this is part of the “Complete Streets” effort and is a way to strengthen and reconnect disadvantaged communities and make sure there are safer alternatives for people who walk, ride their bike or use public transportation to work.

The effort will identify existing bicycle and pedestrian facilities and improve needs on and parallel to state highways.

“We’re excited to kick-off this plan and engage the community about ways to encourage more biking and walking and provide better facilities for this,” Caltrans District 5 Planning Director Aileen Loe said.

Caltrans District 5 is encouraging people to visit its website to learn more about the plan, participate in surveys and talk to them in person at a community event.
