Alexandria’s bike/pedestrian counting project has been helpful for documenting increases in bicycling and walking/running in the past two years. This project informs the City’s transportation planning efforts, such as documenting the need for new bike lanes and new bike routes. We need volunteers to keep this effort going on May 9 (5 to 7 PM) and May 11 (12 to 2 PM). Please see below for details or contact Amos Desjardins ( or Jim Durham ( with questions or to sign up.
