National Documentation Project

For several years now, the Portage County Planning & Zoning Department has been working with local volunteers to collect data for the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project. The goal of the project is to compile nationwide usage data which can be used to support bike/ped planning and implementation efforts.

As surveying efforts have only been underway in Portage County for three years, during which time no infrastructure updates have been implemented, our current data does not reflect any significant trends. Regardless, visual representations of our most complete records have been attached to this post:

Efforts to continue documentation of bicycle and pedestrian usage of major intersections are ongoing and rely heavily on volunteer support. If you’re interested in participating in our May counts, please fill out this form and return it to Sarah Wallace at
