Montana Department
of Transportation Hosts Public Open House Workshops for the Montana
Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan 

HAVRE — The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) is seeking input from the public on developing
the state’s first pedestrian and bicycle plan. 

A series of open
house workshops will be hosted across the state to help develop the
vision and goals for the Montana Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan. The
first workshop will be held on Tuesday, May 15, in Havre from 4:00
p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Best Western Plus Havre Inn & Suite (1425
Highway 2 NW).

The public is encouraged to attend to share its
thoughts on pedestrian and bicycle travel, and to learn about the
planning process. A collaborative effort will help MDT develop and
implement a plan to meet the needs of transportation users across the
state.

Public input will help MDT determine focus areas for
non-motorized transportation such as safety and education, system
preservation and maintenance; mobility, health, and economic
vitality; accessibility and connectivity; and barriers and
challenges.

Bicycle Plan, please visit the project website at:
