Organizers of the annual Washington State Bicycle and Pedestrian Count are seeking volunteers to help a statewide data-collection effort that will inform decisions about funding for sidewalks, trails and bike lanes in communities all across Washington state.
The count will take place over three days — Oct. 20-22 — at four sites in Sequim: three on the Olympic Discovery Trail and one at the traffic circle on Sequim-Dungeness Way.
Volunteers will spend two hours each, either in the morning or the afternoon, at one of the sites over the three days; in all 24 shifts need to be filled.
Each volunteer selects a morning (7 a.m. to 9 a.m.) or afternoon (2 p.m. to 4 p.m.) shift and one of four sites, documenting bicyclists and pedestrians who pass by. After signing up, volunteers will get detailed instructions.
The count is a joint effort between the Washington State Department of Transportation
