HRTPO Staff Seeks Public Comment for Final Chapter of Regional Active Transportation Plan

The Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO), the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Hampton Roads metropolitan planning area, is finalizing its first regional active transportation (bicycle/pedestrian) plan entitled Linking Hampton Roads

During the development of the Plan, HRTPO staff developed an introductory chapter that provides the vision statement and goals, the value of active transportation facilities and connecting communities, types of bicycle users, types of facilities, and level of protection from traffic.

Next, HRTPO staff analyzed the existing conditions, which include the following:

  • Regional Land Use
  • Environmental Features
  • Major Active Transportation Routes
  • Schools
  • Regional Transit
  • Population Density
  • Employment Density
  • Degrees of Disadvantaged Communities
  • Active Transportation Commute Mode Share
  • Crash Analysis
  • STRAVA Metro Data Analysis
  • Previous Local and Regional Plans

Following the existing conditions analysis, Staff assessed the needs of the region and took an in-depth look at the existing facilities across the region and developed the infrastructure recommendations, which include proposed regional facilities.
