MORPC BLIND WALK AUDIT

Friday, September 19, 2014
1PM & 2:45PM
Location TBD

As part of the 2014 Great Placemakers Lab MORPC will host two Blind Walk Audits on Friday, September 19 at 1PM and 2:45PM. 

Walking audits are a simple but powerful tool used to assess the walking environment of a street. They can be especially useful for traffic engineers, planners, and other decision makers who make street design decisions by providing a first-hand review of the walking environment.

This event will include a 1 mile guided walking tour in a selected neighborhood to demonstrate how difficult it can be for both visually and physically impaired residents to navigate certain sidewalk and crosswalk designs. For more information visit the event page.
