Non-motorized Transportation Plan

Non-motorized transportation includes walking or using a wheelchair, bicycling, skating, and using pedicabs. The Non-motorized Transportation Plan, as part of the Total Mobility Plan, will serve as an update to the MPO’s Bikeway Plan of 2000 and as well as providing a plan now to address the needs of pedestrians, and other self-powered travelers. The Plan will be developed by:

  • Identifying needed improvements for the non-motorized modes;
  • Identifying areas for amenities to help create a human-scaled environment that encourages use of physically active modes;
  • Prioritizing improvements and identifying funding opportunities

The resulting prioritized lists will guide the MPO in programming the $98 million that is set aside for non-motorized transportation over 25 years in the Framework Mobility Plan and will be incorporated into the Total Mobility Plan.

The lists can also guide local governments in the development of Capital Improvement Programs, and guide organizations applying for grants in the future, under such programs as Transportation Enhancement and Safe Routes to School.

Map of Bicycle Level of Service Evaluation on the Proposed Network: This map categorizes existing conditions on the bicycle network. Level of Service (LOS) is a way of describing how "bicycle-friendly" the segments are, with LOS A being extremely good and LOS F being extremely poor. The purpose is to show which segments need the most improvement.
