Is access/mobility/transportation education being incorporated throughout the school curriculum, rather than only as an add-on program like Safe Routes to Schools?

With the improvements being made in the areas that you've identified, will there be follow up steps to businesses, government entities, etc. to provide directions for walking, bicycling and transit to their facilities?

Have other government agencies participated, for example, by providing transit, walking, and bicycling directions to their facilities? Are government agencies adjusting work schedules to facilitate employees using transit?

Thank you for your question about PAWS, Lindell! That question is probably easier for me to answer via chat. PAWS is a prioritization tool that MnDOT has created to highlight places in Minnesota where we expect more people are walking, or that it’s more dangerous for people to walk. The tool uses 19 factors to calculate this score. You can find more information here: https://mndot.maps.arcgis.com/apps/View/index.html?appid=1cc55aa66d3844a98402c84673f73d14

Jake: I located the PAWS methodology in the MN Statewide Pedestrian System Plan (pg. 70). Can you speak to any interesting observations from this evaluation. Or recommendations for other agencies that may be interested in conducting similar evaluation, perhaps at a smaller scale?

Public and private employers, seems like sometimes the slowest adopters for incentivizing non-SOV driving is government.

A roundtable, like Ashley is describing, is an iterative, small group conversation amongst residents. Residents identify topics or areas of concern and we help bring information for the group to digest - and of course we learn an immense amount ourselves.

Having walked & bicycled to school in the 1950s, my impression has been that the special bicycling facilities have lead to motorists believing that people who bicycle or walk don't belong on the road. Since so most of our neighborhood roads will not have special facilities for generations, if ever, what is being done to provide for the safety of people walking and bicycling on all our roads?

Hi Cathy! Another thing to add on tactical urbanism projects (what we would call demonstration projects in MN) - you can check out an interactive map of projects that MnDOT has installed over the last couple years here:https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/5401b213d710486e85a4f9398a517d2eThese projects are typically left up for a minimum of 2 weeks, but most are installed for the duration of our warm season.
