Active Transportation Small Projects Fund

According to US Census Bureau, about 15% of all trips to work and school in Provo are done on foot or on bike--the highest percentage in the state by far (the average is 4%). However, our streets are designed primarily for the rapid flow of motor vehicles. Provo needs safe streets designed for people--adults and children, including those with disabilities--walking, biking, and rolling to their destinations.

Our ask is simple--that $100,000 of Provo City's streets budget be dedicated to small street design changes that make it safer to bike and walk. With the new quarter-cent sales tax increase going to transportation, that will be less than 3% of the current streets budget. 

These projects will literally save lives. After 14-year old Caleb Lane was killed walking to the Rec Center, Provo City installed a safe crosswalk that cost about $50,000. $100,000 will allow Provo to do two similar projects per year, this time before tragedy strikes.
