Making Streets Safer For Walkers and Bikers
Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) A Twin Falls workshop is trying to make local streets safer.
The workshop is part of a statewide effort to create communities that support all forms of transportation.
The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare and the Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation for Health are supporting the workshops.
The hope is to improve Idahoan's health, reduce pollution that causes asthma and provide more options for those who don't drive.
"If you were able to do you know thirty minutes a day as part of your commute, walking or biking to work or to school now you've gotten your exercise for the day," said Deanna Smith, Idaho Smart Growth.
Friday city council members took a tour of Twin Falls by bike to get first hand biking experience.
Making bike trails better is one of the items city leaders are tackling as part of the strategic planning process.
