State DOT seeks comments on Walk Bike NC plan

NCDOT NCDOT
RALEIGH, N.C. -

The North Carolina Transportation Department is seeking public comments on the first draft of the Walk Bike NC statewide pedestrian and bicycle plan, which will guide how the state invests in walking and bicycling.

The public is invited to review the plan online and submit comments until April 30.

The state wants to create a blueprint to improve walking and bicycling in communities. Officials say investing in sidewalks, bike lanes and greenways benefit communities at a low cost.

Those benefits include promoting physical health, reducing traffic congestion and fostering local businesses by encouraging foot traffic.
