Today is the last full day to let the Transportation Advisory Committee know how you feel about RIDOT’s proposal to shift $37.5 million away from pedestrian and bike projects in favor of fossil fuel infrastructure. If you want safe access to the public roadways using the whatever mode of transportation makes sense–walking, biking, transit, driving and all the endless combinations–please take this opportunity to speak out. Let your views be known!

2) Write to the Secretary of the Transportation Advisory Committee, Michael D’Alessandro.
