 Regional Pedestrian Plan

 

More than 100 miles of sidewalks and a number of signalized pedestrian crossings have been added here in recent years, and regional planning efforts continue to focus on improving the comfort, reliability and safety of the region's infrastructure for pedestrians. Given that focus, PAG developed the PAG 2014 Regional Pedestrian Plan, a data-driven report that identifies pedestrian priorities, emphasizes the importance of walking as a mode of transportation, inventories pedestrian needs and identifies regional pedestrian goals and priorities.

The plan includes dozens of specific targets,
such as:

  • Increasing the walk-to-work share in the region by 30 percent by 2025.
  • Reducing the five-year averages of pedestrian injuries and fatalities in the region by 20 percent by 2020. 
  • Increasing the availability of accessible, complete and connected sidewalks and pedestrian walkways in the region to 600 linear miles of accessible sidewalk segments by 2025.

It also includes dozens of measurable objectives,
such as:

  • Finishing and bringing into ADA compliance incomplete or inaccessible sidewalk segments along urban arterials, collector streets, near transit stops and at other potential high pedestrian-volume locations.
  • Incorporating pedestrian safety as a primary consideration of roadway design at the start of all transportation projects.
  • Working with state leaders to promote greater flexibility in allowing the use of state transportation funds for pedestrian and bicycle projects.
