Volunteers Needed For Countywide Bicyclist And Pedestrian Count

Hennepin County is teaming up with Minneapolis Public Works in 2017 for the second annual countywide bicyclist and pedestrian count Sept 12-14, and you can help!

Pedestrian and bicycle counts help counties and cities better understand how streets, sidewalks, and trails serve people walking and biking. Accurate counts help us better understand what is working and what could be improved.

Last year, volunteers helped collect data in eight cities outside of Minneapolis. This year, Hennepin County hopes to have enough volunteers to cover more than 20 locations across 13 first and second ring suburban cities.

Count shifts will run from 4-6 pm on the these dates:

  • Tuesday, Sept 12
  • Wednesday, Sept 13
  • Thursday, Sept 14

Register online or by contacting Emily Kettell at 612-543-1963.
