Arkansas Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan, Jonesboro

Thursday, May 8, 2014

I can't believe I've seen the day...I'm so excited that Chloe, Jackie and I attended the Arkansas Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan sponsored by the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department.  The public meeting at 6 pm tonight covered a ton of points about improving the roads for pedestrians and cyclists.  The AHTD has a Google map that anyone can log into and register with a username and describe the cyclist you are.  You can log in and map bad road crossings for pedestrians, shoulder needs for cyclists etc.  I'm excited for this opportunity for Northeast Arkansas.  Everyone should go to their website and register the type cyclist you are at: and go to the interactive map at and log in!! I'm so fired up, I'm just saying.  And Jackie must be because tonight is the the first round of the NFL draft.  It's been 23 years knowing Jackie and this is one of his favorite days of the year and he drove us to Jonesboro on a school night to support cycling in Northeast Arkansas!
