Capitol Region Bicycle and Pedestrian Priority Network Plan

Study Updates

An RFQ seeking qualified Consultants to support CRCOG in this Study was issued on March 22, 2024 and closed April 24, 2024. After the Consultant selection process is completed, the Study is expected to begin in Summer 2024.

About the Study

The purpose of this study is to develop a vision and create an implementation plan for a regional bicycle and pedestrian network. Ideally, the network will:

  • aim to meet bicycle and pedestrian Levels of Traffic Stress 1 (meaning welcoming to users of all ages and abilities) using approaches and designs appropriate to each segment of the network,
  • serve utility/transportation cyclists and pedestrians by connecting people to destinations, while also allowing for recreational use,
  • build on previous efforts such as the Capitol Region Complete Streets Plan and East Coast Greenway Gap Closure Study, and,
  • serve the CRCOG communities as active transportation arterials that connect to local bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure.

The network will include both larger arterials and smaller segments that close gaps to the local networks. CRCOG expects that the network will emphasize facilities that are off-road or physically separated from vehicular traffic, but that there may be segments where Level of Traffic Stress 1 can be met with on-road facilities.
