This app, brought to you by Code for New River Valley in coordination with the Blacksburg Police Department is designed to help residents and visitors alike find safe walking routes in Blacksburg via color-coded road segments indicating our safety scoring.
We've created a simple color-coded scoring system for roads. During the day, we factor in speed limits and sidewalks available, while at night, we throw street lights into the mix so you can have a well lit walk downtown or back home.
In order to use the search functionality, the app must know your current location. Search a destination in Blacksburg and we'll grab walking directions from Google, and give that route a score so you can decide whether you want to take a detour onto some safer roads on your walk.
