State Department of Transportation needs about 400 volunteers to help count bicyclists and pedestrians from from Oct. 1-3, according to a press release from the Washington State Dept. of Transportation.
According to Secretary of Transportation Lynn Peterson, counting bicyclists and pedestrians helps more accurately measure demand, guage the results of the department's investments, and plan for future improvement projects.
This is the sixth annual survey, and the department enlists volunteers and organizations such as FeetFirst, and the Bicycle Alliance of Washington. Counts are taken in at least 38 cities in throughout the state, the release said.
