You can help count the bikes, pedestrians in Snoqualmie Thursday

In 2012, nearly 60,000 bicyclists and pedestrians using the roads and sidewalks were counted, according to volunteer counts across Washington State, but there are no records for Snoqualmie in 2012 because no one was out counting. This year, the Snoqualmie Planning Department hopes to change that.

Twelve volunteers are needed in Snoqualmie for two-hour shifts on Thursday, Oct. 3, during the hours of 7 to 9 a.m. or 4 to 6 p.m. All that’s needed is something to write on, a pen or pencil, and a cell phone or watch to track the time.

“Those interested in helping can learn more by visiting WSDOT’s website, or by contacting the Cascade Bicycle Club at or (206) 861-9890.
