‘Walk Roll Delco’ Map-based Survey Invites Residents to Identify Dangerous Areas and Barriers to Active Transportation in Delaware County

Web-based survey open to residents through March 31

Delaware County Council and the Delaware County Planning Department are reminding residents to take part in a recently launched map-based “Walk Roll Delco” survey inviting residents to help identify dangerous or insufficient roads, sidewalks, trails, and bridges that are a barrier to where they would like to walk, bike, or roll.

Results of this survey will contribute to the Vision Zero Action Plan and the Active Transportation Plan, which aim to create more walkable communities by improving safe and accessible transportation options for everyone, whether walking, biking, or using a vehicle. Creating a modernized, connected, multimodal traffic network with significantly reduced traffic fatalities and injuries will greatly reduce economic costs associated with traffic crashes and will also improve the public health of the community.

One traffic fatality is one too many, and the Vision Zero Action Plan is the County’s commitment to eliminating traffic fatalities and severe injuries, recognizing that all road users are vulnerable and that we need to design our transportation system to protect everyone.

The Walk Roll Delco Survey is open to all Delco residents and will remain active on the Planning Department website through March 31, 2024.

“We are working hard to enhance the safety and livability of our communities, and we recognize that the insights and experiences of our residents are invaluable,” said Delaware County Planning Department Director Gina Burritt. “The 'Walk Roll Delco' survey represents a critical step toward reshaping our transportation landscape into one that prioritizes the well-being of all who navigate it.”

With less than 10 days until the survey deadline, we welcome your input!

How to Take the Walk Roll Delco Survey

We want to hear which places YOU wish you could walk, bike, or roll, but currently can’t due safety concerns, maintenance issues, or other barriers.

To take the survey, visit DelcoPA.Gov/WRDSurvey, close the splash screen by clicking “Enter,” and zoom to the section of the Delaware County map that you want to report an issue on. Once you have located the area on the map, select "Report Issue" and choose one of seven categories:

  1. I want to walk, bike or roll here
  2. I don't feel safe riding a bike, scooter, or other micromobility device here
  3. There is a maintenance issue here (e.g., sidewalk needs repair)
  4. There is a barrier or missing connection that prevents me from riding bike, scooter, or other micromobility device here
  5. There is a barrier or missing connection that prevents me from walking or using a mobility assistive device (like a wheelchair) here
  6. There is an accessibility issue here (e.g., missing curb ramp)
  7. I don't feel safe walking or using a mobility assistive device (like a wheelchair) here!

After selecting the category, click “Next” then click the specific point on the map; be sure to be precise! Finally, just enter you name (optional), zip code, and describe the issue in your own words.
