We’ve seen a lot of news about the state of the roads in Berkshire county these last few months, what with the Berkshire Eagle award-winning series, Sick Bridges, and the ongoing state of disaster in Adams caused by the recent outrageous levels of flooding.

Take the Regional Transportation Survey

(closes November 1, 2018)

Big questions obviously have to be asked, perennial problems have to be addressed, and the future gettin’-around needs of residents has to be taken into account. It’s not like a vehicle for transportation solutions doesn’t already exist, thankfully, and an option for public involvement is waiting with the engine running, so to speak.

The Berkshire Regional Planning Commission is in the midst of preparing it’s 2020 Regional Transportation Plan, and invites you to put in your two cents.
