Winchester Bike and Pedestrian Implementation
The Winchester-Frederick County Metropolitan Planning Organization (WinFred MPO) is leading an effort to design a four-and-three-quarter-mile long on-street bikeway running north-south through the heart of Winchester.
The MPO has contracted with Racey Engineering of Luray, and EPR, a Charlottesville design firm, to design a bikeway that will attract users who might otherwise shy away from biking on streets. The project team is also cataloguing historic, cultural and environmental features along the Green Circle Trail, for a future signage project.
A public workshop was held in Winchester on May 23rd. The consulting team gathered feedback on preliminary designs (click here for the workshop flyer and presentation) from some 20 area residents. The final report will be released in September.
