BICYCLE AND PEDESTRAIN FACILITIES IN THE FEDERAL-AID HIGHWAY PROGRAM

This guide is for those organizations interested in encouraging the development of bicycle and pedestrian pathways along Federal-aid highway routes. Bikeways are a further use of our nation's highway system which are not only low cost but also energy efficient and pollution free. Under the provisions of the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1973, FHWA can authorize states to use their regularly apportioned Federal-aid highway funds for the construction of bikeways and pedestrian walkways outside the normal Federal-aid highway rights-of-way. The ever-increasing importance of the potential of the bicycle as an urban commuter and recreational vehicle is attested to by the fact that more than 40 percent of all urban trips are of four miles or less.
