Jim over at the Downtown Living Advocates is bringing news of a joint study to determine the state of pedestrian traffic in Downtown Raleigh!  The good news?  More of us are walking, and lots of us are doing it Downtown!

"The Downtown Raleigh Alliance (DRA) and the City of Raleigh Planning Department recently examined pedestrian traffic in key downtown areas.  The pedestrian study was conducted to support economic development programs and infrastructure planning initiatives in strategic areas.  The objective of the study was to develop a tool that downtown stakeholders and City officials could use to more accurately target growth areas and help resolve design issues with sidewalks, streetscapes, and pedestrian connectivity to on- and off-street parking locations.  It will also serve as a baseline pedestrian count data for future trend analyses.
