Bicycle and Pedestrian Study

Example of a Pedestrian SignalThe Bicycle and Pedestrian Task Force was established to provide a forum for public input into the planning process. Everyone is welcome at our quarterly meetings to discuss bicycle and pedestrian issues, assist in the creation of the Bicycle and Pedestrian Connectivity Study and make their voice heard. Contact William McNulty by email or at 508-583-1833 for more information on this project.

The Phase One study of the Bicycle and Pedestrian Connectivity and Livability Study has been completed and is currently available at OCPC's Reports page. In the second phase of the study, the Old Colony Planning Council is seeking the participation of the community stakeholders to identify potential bicycle and pedestrian opportunities. Phase 2 consists of an in-depth infrastructure analysis where short, medium, and long-term bicycle and pedestrian recommendations will be identified in each community. These recommendations will be acquired from stakeholders by OCPC staff through the standardized MassDOT Project Need and Project Initiation forms. OCPC staff will assist communities with the identification process and the form submittal process.

We encourage everyone to view our Interactive Map hosted at ArcGIS.com to identify bicycle and pedestrian problems and opportunities. Once the recommendations are acquired, the bicycle and pedestrian task force will prioritize them. Subsequently, the next phases of the study will consist of identifying funding opportunities.
