Working to improve how we grade our bicycle and pedestrian facilities

June 2018 – The MPO has developed a draft white paper to look at what is new in the evolution of measuring bicycle and pedestrian Level of Service (LOS). LOS is used to measure the quality and safety of bicycle and pedestrian facilities. New methods were identified to update how the MPO measures LOS. For bicycles, the MPO is looking to implement a Level of Traffic Stress (LTS) that will apply a score to the roadway facilities within Hillsborough County. To improve pedestrian facilities, the MPO is focused on pedestrian crossings, including an intersection inventory.

Prior to the 5:30 p.m. start of the next Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Meeting on Wednesday, June 13th, the MPO will hold an Open House to introduce the effort and get feedback. Please join us at 5:00 p.m.on the 18th Floor of County Center.
