SAN DIEGO — Local Caltrans officials are using National Bike Month to launch their new Active Transportation Survey to identify locations for bicycle and pedestrian improvements on the state highway system. The public can play a critical role in shaping the plans by participating in this localized map-based survey.

“This is the first comprehensive Active Transportation Plan for San Diego and Imperial Counties,” said Caltrans District 11 Director Gustavo Dallarda. “This plan will prioritize active transportation improvements that will lead to more comfortable travel for pedestrians, bicyclists, and others, and help guide Caltrans infrastructure investments in the coming years.”

The public survey is available now in English and Spanish and will allow residents to tell Caltrans where improvements could be made to better serve bicycling and walking on or near the state highway system. Survey responses will provide specific data about the type and location of needed improvements, allowing Caltrans to evaluate these locations in developing future projects.

Caltrans wants to align the state’s bicycle and pedestrian network with the needs of local communities, with an emphasis on improving social equity, reconnecting communities, and improving access for all modes of transportation, including people who walk and bicycle. Caltrans will be actively engaging with partners and community members in areas where historic transportation decisions may have created barriers to adequate transportation.
