Call for Volunteers
Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) has just opened up their website to signups for the Bike/Ped Count Sites. The counts will take place over the 3-day period of October 20-21-22. Each volunteer needs to go to https://wsdot.wa.gov/travel/commute-choices/bike/count for complete information and for the link to sign up. On the signup link, choose either Franklin or Benton County to get the list of locations and times. Remember, that any particular location only needs to be counted once in the morning and once in the afternoon during the 3-day Counting Period. When you sign up for your Count Site(s), please also forward the information to Dave Beach, since we are unable to access who has signed up for a particular location and time. We only see that someone has chosen that site, and we would like to be able to coordinate and communicate with the individual volunteers at the local level. Dave can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A few of the Count Sites in Richland have been reorganized with the hope of acquiring more useful data. One new site in Pasco will be added, but is not yet uploaded to the WSDOT webpage -- check back soon. It will be located at W. Lewis St & S. 10th Ave. All Count Sites in the other cities remain the same as last year. Sign up as soon as possible to get your favorite Count Location(s) and time(s)! Please help us recruit other volunteers who may not have received this notice and would enjoy helping out. It is always good to have a partner/backup for yourself. Any questions, please refer to the WSDOT website listed above, or contact Dave Beach.
