Fort Worth resident feedback is important to help transportation planners identify what improvements would most benefit the community. A draft citywide network plan of bicycle and pedestrian facilities will be available for review and input through Nov. 2.
Use an interactive map to tell which areas you think should be prioritized for biking and walking improvements.
Resident input will help determine what connections are needed most and the types of improvements that will most benefit mobility for pedestrians, bicycles, people with disabilities and all other users of the active transportation network.
Visit the project website for information on the plan and to view the Sept. 25 open house presentation.
The City of Fort Worth has partnered with the North Central Texas Council of Governments with support through the Blue Zones Project to create an Active Transportation Plan. Active transportation is transportation powered by human energy, and the active transportation network is the bicycle and pedestrian facilities, as well as connections to the public transportation system, that allows people to get around the city without a car.
Public transportation is active travel because it often starts or ends with a walking trip and it provides an essential connection for people who walk (including people who use mobility devices).
This plan will integrate and update previous planning efforts such as the Walk Fort Worth and Bike Fort Worth plans, develop a new Trails Master Plan and provide coordination with the regional Transit Master Plan. The result will be a unified, citywide transportation network for people who walk and bike, with a coordinated implementation strategy for planning, prioritizing and building improvements.
