Columbia Association (CA) and Howard County’s Office of Transportation partnered in spring 2018 for the fifth annual Bicycle and Pedestrian Pathway Count program. Between May 31 and June 13, a total of 39 volunteers performed 93 counts at 14 locations throughout Columbia and eastern Howard County.
Volunteers captured demographic and numerical snapshots of pedestrians, bicyclists and other active modes of transportation at key intersections in the pathway system and on-street locations. The data gives CA and Howard County a better understanding of who travels in these key locations and the impact of past improvements to infrastructure, as well as identifying future investments to improve user comfort.
Stay tuned for highlights from this year’s count and the complete 2018 Bicycle and Pedestrian Count Program report.
