HRTPO Staff Seeks Public Input on Linking Hampton Roads – A Regional Active Transportation Plan

HRTPO Staff Seeks Public Input on Linking Hampton Roads – A Regional Active Transportation Plan

Linking Hampton Roads is the first regional active transportation plan produced by HRTPO.  It will guide the HRTPO and the region with a clear structure for the development of new facilities, programs, and policies that will link our region by developing greater active transportation facilities and promote active and healthy lifestyles throughout the region.   Active transportation is all forms of human-powered transportation.  The most common forms are walking and biking.  Active transportation provides people with an alternative transportation choice while also contributing to a healthy active lifestyle.

HRTPO staff has analyzed and produced the region’s existing conditions and active transportation network.  As staff is moving forward, it is currently working on recommendations for proposed facilities and network.  During the month of May, HRTPO staff will be seeking input from the public at the following events:

Norfolk Bike Expo

  • Slover Library, 235 E. Plume St. Norfolk, VA 23510, on May 7 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM.
  • The Norfolk Bike Expo invites citizens to speak to different advocacy groups, city leaders, and local trail foundations.  After the expo, the City is hosting a bike ride.

Tour de Fort

  • Oozlefinch Brewery, 1052, 81 Patch Rd, Hampton, VA 23651 on May 19, from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM. 
  • Tour de Fort is a bike ride starting and finishing at Oozlefinch Brewery that will ride around historic Fort Monroe.

Staff is also asking for engagement through an online survey.  The online survey can be found at:
