Public Meetings for Metropolitan Transportation Plan Update and Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Plan

April 30, 2019 Metropolitan Planning Organization, Uncategorized Comments Off on Public Meetings for Metropolitan Transportation Plan Update and Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Plan

The South Central Planning and Development Commission is requesting your participation in providing input on two separate transportation planning documents. Meetings will be held in various locations and times throughout these area. Your local knowledge and input is extremely valuable to us as we prepare the plans!

The Houma-Thibodaux Metropolitan Transportation Plan will detail roadway and transit projects within Assumption, Lafourche, and Terrebonne parishes. The Plan will highlight new roadways and the widening of existing roadways in addition to emphasizing bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure, safety improvements, future transit service, and other strategies to alleviate congestion.

The South Central Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Plan will detail projects and policies aimed at the reduction of bicycle and pedestrian related crashes and fatalities within a seven-parish area including Assumption, Lafourche, St. Charles, St. James, St. John the Baptist, St. Mary, and Terrebonne.

The public is invited to participate in the planning process through a series of short, interactive workshops designed to provide planners with needed local knowledge pertaining to the area’s transportation network. Participants will be given an opportunity to identify areas of congestion, unsafe segments of roadways, and potential solutions to those problems.
