MOVING ALONG THE SIDEWALK

Pedestrian walkwayThe sidewalk network is incomplete or inadequate.

A continuous sidewalk network supports and encourages walking. In many cases, sidewalks are installed on both sides of a street, although this is not necessary or desirable in every location. In addition to concrete sidewalks, alternative sidewalk options can be used to construct pedestrian walkways. Click here for more information.

In addition to constructing additional sidewalks, paths, and trails, other tools can be used to communicate existing paths of travel to pedestrians. Education, encouragement, design, planning, equity, and funding tools can all be useful.
