How is the County helping to create an environment that makes traveling by bike an option?

Reducing the number of trips made while driving alone in gas-powered vehicles and shifting those trips to alternative modes such as biking, walking, and transit is a key strategy for the County’s 2018 Climate Action Plan.

Measure T-2.1 – Improve Roadway Segments as Multi-Modal – seeks to reduce vehicle miles driven and increase opportunities for walking and bicycling by creating a more comfortable and safer experience for pedestrians and bicyclists. Known as “Complete Streets”, the County is implementing multi-modal roadway enhancements, such as intersection, roadway, and bikeway improvements, as part of road resurfacing projects to ensure people of all ages and abilities have opportunities to be active and safe regardless of their mode of transportation.
