Local residents interested in finding alternative ways to get around town can explore ‘active’ transportation alternatives next month.
PennDOT’s Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) will offer an Active Transportation course at Borough Hall on December 4. The course will discuss the latest research and guidelines for
non-motorized transportation modes.
Many communities in Pennsylvania are encouraging more active transportation such as walking and cycling. It is a way to enhance the community and foster healthy lifestyles. Corresponding to this encouragement of active transportation, communities are looking to develop active transportation plans to help create more facilities such as bicycle paths, sidewalks, trails, and greenways.
The course will examine the safety and standards for these facilities, as well as how to develop an active transportation plan. The course will also highlight successful examples of local plans, practices, and policies in Pennsylvania.
LTAP instructor Patrick Wright will lead the course. It takes place from 8 a.m. to noon in the Community Room on the Fourth Floor of Utility Departments Addition to Borough Hall. The Utility Departments Addition can be accessed from the entrance of the parking lot at the rear of the building. The entrance is next to the flagpoles.
