URMD Pedestrian and Biking Improvement Projects

About URMD Pedestrian and Biking Improvement Projects

The Urban Road Maintenance District (URMD) funds small-scale (usually less than $500,000) pedestrian and biking improvement projects. These projects include sidewalks, pathways, bike lanes and paved shoulders. Since 2011, more than 40 URMD Pedestrian and Biking Improvement Projects totaling $14 million have been funded.

The public can submit Pedestrian and Biking Improvement candidates. Eligible candidates are added to the Pedestrian and Biking Improvements candidate list. Currently, the list has more than 200 candidates on it. Candidates are reviewed when funding becomes available, and candidates eligible for that funding are then considered. Currently, the only program with funding for pedestrian and biking improvements is the URMD Pedestrian and Biking Improvement Program.

The Overveiw of URMD Pedestrian and Biking Improvement Projects offers a brief explanation of the selection process and the Summary Report: URMD Pedestrian and Biking Improvement Program provides a deeper look at the program.

To be eligible, a proposed URMD pedestrian or biking improvement project must:

  • Improve a specific pedestrian or biking safety concern
  • Be located within the URMD
  • Not already be on the candidate list

PLEASE NOTE: Traffic signals, signs, crosswalks and other pavement markings are handled by the Department of Land Use & Transportation Traffic Engineering section and do not qualify for URMD funding.

The Urban Road Maintenance Advisory Committee (URMDAC) reviews the candidate list annually after July 15 to identify projects for funding. The public is asked to comment on the top candidates in the fall, before URMDAC recommends projects for inclusion in the next fiscal year Road Maintenance Program.

To view all URMD pedestrian and biking improvement candidates and well as funded projects, go to the URMD Pedestrian and Biking Improvements Map.
