Community Connectivity: Nationally Connected, Locally Invested

This presentation is part of the Designing and Engineering for Safety and Connectivity session.

The Community Connectivity Program transportation program, seeks to improve accommodations for bicyclists and pedestrians in urban, suburban and rural community centers.  These community centers serve as a place where people can meet for social, educational, employment and recreational activities.  The primary goal of the Program is to make conditions safer and more accommodating for pedestrians and cyclists, thereby encouraging more people to use these healthy and environmentally sustainable modes of travel. At the same time, these improvements will make community centers more attractive and livable places to live and work.
