Morgantown Healthy Streets
Current Healthy Streets
The first Healthy Street soft closure will begin on July 15 on a portion of Wagner Road from Simpson Street to Dorsey Avenue. Using speed classifiers and trail cameras, city engineers will collect data by measuring traffic volume in the area surrounding the closed streets. View a map of the portion of Wagner Road that will be affected here.
Future Healthy Streets
Community feedback, engineering judgement, and input from the Traffic Commission and Ped/Bike Safety Boards will guide the city in developing Healthy Streets that meet the needs of all residents. See the below map for information on proposed routes under consideration.
The city welcomes general feedback form the community on the initiative, suggestions for additional Healthy Streets or changes to existing routes. Comments can be sent via email to email@example.com.
The city also seeks volunteers to be Healthy Street Captains. These volunteers will serve as neighborhood leaders, helping to monitor the streets and reporting any concerns or conflicts that might arise. They may also help the city collect observational data.
