It’s no secret that plenty of people are living closer to uptown, and closer to work, in higher-density developments than our car-driven city has been used to over the last 50 years. But as more people forego cars for bikes, walking, even riding a scooter, have our transportation systems — roads, paths, and sidewalks in particular — kept up?
Scott Curry wants to make sure it does. As Active Transportation Coordinator for Charlotte DOT, Scott’s job is to find the gaps in bike and pedestrian paths and fill them, connecting the city in ways other than by car. His job sounds more important than ever, and he’s here with us to tell us how the city is going to get that goal done.
