Wish there were more bike lanes in your neighborhood? How about sidewalks? If you walk or ride a bicycle in North Carolina, the Department of Transportation wants to hear from you.

It's asking residents to respond to a survey on improving bicycle and pedestrian safety.

"Building a safer transportation network is a primary goal of our department, and meeting the safety needs of our state’s bicyclists and pedestrians is a key part of that," explained Deputy Secretary of Transit Jim Westmoreland. "The feedback we receive from this survey will allow us to better plan to meet these needs, and in turn improve the overall biking and walking experience in North Carolina."

The survey is open to all North Carolina residents and visitors until Feb. 8, and can be accessed on NCDOT’s Division of Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation website at
