Justification

This project will enhance efforts to improve pedestrian and bicyclist mobility, safety, and access within 1/2-mile of all Purple Line Stations. Efforts include the design and construction of cycle tracks, bicycle lanes, trail connections, and neighborhood greenways as well as pedestrian improvements including sidewalks and ADA-upgrades. These improvements will help improve connectivity for people walking and biking to important community amenities such as schools, retail, and commercial centers as well as accessibility to each of the Purple Line stations. These efforts will also meet master plan non-auto-driver mode share (NADMS) goals. The project will help the County achieve its Vision Zero goals to reduce deaths and serious injuries on County roadways to zero.
