ECWRPC is seeking your input on enhancing transportation in the Fox Cities and Oshkosh

East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (ECWRPC) is seeking feedback for two of its plans: the Congestion Management Process Plan and the Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.

A Congestion Management Process Plan (CMP) addresses strategies to improve safety and reduce traffic congestion on area roadways in urbanized areas of more than 200,000 people. Last updated in 2013, ECWRPC’s CMP describes a combination of approaches including demand management, system operation and management, multimodal investments, land use, parking and regulatory strategies.

In addition to the Congestion Management Plan, ECWRPC is updating its bicycle and pedestrian plan, which represents the urbanized areas of Calumet, Outagamie, and Winnebago counties. This plan covers bicycle and pedestrian facilities for both transportation and recreation, with the goal of creating a robust, seamless network of bicycle and pedestrian facilities (e.g. trails, bike lanes, sidewalks).
