    This annual event records bicycle and pedestrian volumes at specific intersections in cities throughout the State. Our methodology is based on the recommendations from the National Documentation Project. Volunteers will count bicyclists and pedestrians for two hour shifts (7-9 a.m. and 4-6 p.m.) on September 26, September 27, and/or September 28. Count locations in Everett, Bothell, and Mountlake Terrace, as well as King and Skagit counties. See the WSDOT website to signup.
