Volunteer for the annual bicyclist and pedestrian count Sept. 12-14
Minneapolis Public Works is gearing up to conduct its annual bicyclist and pedestrian count Sept. 12-14, and you can help. Volunteers are needed to count the number of bicyclists and pedestrians at several locations around the city. All shifts are from 4 to 6 p.m.
Public Works counts bicyclists and pedestrians to understand the impact of non-motorized traffic on streets, sidewalks and trails. Accurate counts enable the City to plan and build for bicyclists and pedestrians while tracking what’s successful and what should be done differently.
Minneapolis Public Works is also teaming up with Hennepin County this year, offering new counting locations in first-ring suburbs outside of Minneapolis. If you are interested, you can sign up online or contact Emily Kettell at 612-543-1963 or Emily.Kettell@hennepin.us.
