East Central works with WisDOT, local governments and bicycle/pedestrian advocacy groups to develop and coordinate multi-modal trail systems and activities. Local trail segments are critical to providing linkages required for a regional system that serves the alternative transportation needs of the region’s communities and urbanized areas.
In 2012, the East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission finalized its contract with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation to begin work on a bicycle and pedestrian plan for the Fox Cities and Oshkosh Urbanized Areas. Read more about the plan here.
Bicycle and Pedestrian Resources
ECWPRC is available to assist your community with collecting counts on your bicycling and walking facilities (e.g. bike lanes and sidewalks) or on your roadways to help you identify the appropriate locations for bicycling and walking facilities. Two types of counters are available: infrared counters are placed on a post/pole to count facility users as they pass by; tube counters are placed on the ground and are calibrated to count bicycles as they pass over the tubes. If you are interested in having the ECWRPC team place counters in your community, please fill out the form below. Counters are reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis.
