Active Living Project – Biking Assessment
The Grays Harbor Public Health and Social Services Department and the Grays Harbor Council of Governments worked together this fall to develop an assessment of existing bicycle facilities. A small pilot project within the main urban core of Grays Harbor (Aberdeen, Cosmopolis, and Hoquiam) was completed to identify existing bicycling facilities including multi use trails and preferred bicycle street routes; community activity centers and destinations; and impediments to biking. Below you will find links to the project conclusion and summary and a selection of mapping outcomes.
Community specific maps and further information on the biking assessment project can be found on the biking assessment page: www.ghcog.org\bikingassesment2012.html.
