Live Or Travel Through The West Plains Area? Take A Bicycle, Walking And Transit Survey

Staci Lehman

I posted about a week ago that Spokane Regional Transportation Council (SRTC) is conducting a West Plains- Spokane International Airport (WP-SIA) Transportation Study. The long-term goal of the study is to create a balanced plan for making connections and transportation improvements in an effort to increase overall mobility and safety.

A large part of that study involves looking at non-motorized transportation in the West Plains area, because let's face it, walking or bicycling on some of those roads, especially Highway 2, is just plain scary.

To get input on bicycling, transit use, and walking in the West Plains, we're asking you to take a quick survey. It should only take 5-7 minutes. Here's a link, and please pass it on to anyone you know who travels through the West Plains area. The last day to take the survey is May 20.

If you'd like more information on the WP-SIA Transportation Study, go to the SRTC website. Updates and new information will be posted there as it becomes available.
