This presentation is part of the Walking and Walkability in Rural Communities panel.
Come hear how a small community of 900 in the midst of the Bakken boom was able to focus efforts on improving walkability. Ray, ND, has a major 4-lane road that cuts through the center of town, limiting walking options across the community. One solution to this problem was the installation of a HAWK signal. Come hear how the community has created partnerships through planning and practical construction with safe routes to schools, a downtown sidewalk district, and a voluntary program for residential neighborhoods to participate in the City’s annual construction program for sidewalks.
