PROJECT UPDATES

Review the final list of prioritized bicycle and pedestrian needs (2/21/2013) 

The list of the top 30 prioritized bicycle and pedestrian needs is now available. The final list was selected in part based on the nearly 200 survey responses received between November 27 and December 31, 2012. The final list of prioritized needs will serve as a tool that will help inform future project development when funding becomes available.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

As of 2010, there were approximately 430 miles of urban collector and arterial roadways in Washington County, many of which require improved bicycle and pedestrian facilities. Regional goals aim at increasing the commuting mode share of bicycling and walking by nearly three-fold over the next 25 years. This project aimed to produce a list of high priority needs to collector and arterial roadways. To accomplish this, Washington County’s Department of Land Use and Transportation received a $100,000 grant from the Department of Energy to help plan for a complete bike and pedestrian system. 

Outcomes included the development of a recommended subset of 20-50 high priority bike, trail, and pedestrian needs with specific definitions and cost estimates. The DOE funded bike and pedestrian planning project was scheduled to be completed by October, 2012. Note that the project doesn’t include funds for construction of any projects.

Visit the Gap Prioritization  page to view the original top 45 system gaps for sidewalks and the top 45 system gaps for bike lanes, as determined by the county's prioritization criteria and suitability mapping. Gaps in the bicycle and sidewalk networks can be viewed alphabetically in tables, or geographically on a map.
