“Maintaining SPEED with Transportation Resources” will take place from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, March 24 in the entrance plaza outside the County Administration Building, 2020 Hampton St., Columbia. Attendees can speak with County Transportation staff to learn about current and planned projects and try out a Blue Bike, offered by the City of Columbia’s bike share system.

The drop-in session is part of NIP’s SPEED (Sustainability, Planning, Education, Engagement, Development) effort, a yearlong program featuring events geared toward training and engaging the community.

“This event continues the goals of our SPEED program by educating residents about sustainable modes of transportation and responsible development of our roads and trails in the County,” said Marc Ridlehoover, Richland County neighborhood planner.

In the event of inclement weather, this event will be postponed to a later date.
