Public Input Encouraged on Second Phase of Multimodal Study
 
Members of the public are encouraged to provide additional input and recommendations on routes for biking and walking in Gloucester. This is a second phase in the County’s Multimodal Transportation Study that took place last fall.
 
The project’s consultant, Toole Design, compiled a group of recommendations that were submitted during the first phase of the project into a Vision Network Map. Now, the consultant is seeking input on which routes the County should prioritize when seeking funding for the multimodal projects.
