How much do bicycle and pedestrian facilities cost?

The cost of bicycle and pedestrian facilities varies greatly depending on the current cost of materials, rights-of-way needs, and topographic site features. Comprehensive cost information, as well as important considerations in choosing and installing facilities are found in PEDSAFE and BIKESAFE.

In addition, the BikeCost tool provides regularly-updated cost estimates for most types of bicycle facilities. It can be targeted to specific localities, and also provides estimates of usage.

We also include cost estimates for most of the pedestrian features discussed in the Engineering section.
