Bicycling and Walking in North Carolina, A Long Range Transportation Plan

North Carolina Department of Transportation

Developed by the Office of Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation of the NCDOT, this plan demonstrates a technique for performing a state-wide inventory: in the plan- making process, city managers or mayors of NC communities with populations of at least 1,000 were surveyed for information on the community's walking environment. The plan summed the individual data to obtain the total miles of a particular pedestrian facility in the state. The plan also discusses crash data and reviews relevant pedestrian content of different Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) plans. The plan formulates actions, supplies funding sources/levels, and calls for an evaluation of projects.
