ODOT Seeks Public Input On State Bike & Pedestrian Draft Plan

Presented By McDonald’s, I’m Lovin’ It!

ODOT is presenting Walk.Bike.Ohio, Ohio’s first statewide plan for active modes of transportation. The themes, strategies and action steps contained in Walk.Bike.Ohio will address the plan’s goals of safety, equity, network connectivity, network utilization, preservation and quality of life.

Many of Ohio’s residents depend on walking or bicycling to remain mobile and connected; and so many also are choosing and prioritizing healthy, sustainable lifestyles.

ODOT is inviting your feedback on this draft plan. Feedback and comments are essential to ensure Walk.Bike.Ohio outlines the key steps ODOT and its partners should take to improve the safety and comfort of pedestrians and bicyclists throughout the state.

The City of Chillicothe and other Ohio communities are expressing an interest in getting more walking and biking paths available for use for students and staff to walk or ride to school as well as others riding to their work places.

After reviewing the draft, ODOT asks that you share your feedback by taking a brief survey at: PublicInput.com/Walk.Bike.Ohio by Friday, February 26.
