15-point-eight-billion-dollars: that’s what the Northeast Ohio Area-wide Coordinating Agency says is needed for the next twenty years of transportation infrastructure work in and around Cleveland.

Volunteers spent three days last week counting pedestrians and cyclists in Northeast Ohio as part of region-wide study.

NOACA, the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency, gathered data in Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorrain and Medina counties.

Spokeswoman Jocelynn Clemings says the information will be used in planning and designing multi-modal infrastructure.

A new website shows Ohioans the costs – and benefits – of any trip they’re making in the state, whether by car, bike, bus or on-foot.

Gohiocommute.com can tell you, for example, how many calories you’d burn by biking to work or how much pollution you’ll cause if you drive.

The Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency developed the site, which spokeswoman Jocelyn Clemings says will hopefully show people the effects of air pollution, and how to reduce it.
