Alabama Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan

Walking and bicycling are important elements of every transportation system, allowing people of all ages and abilities to access everyday needs, including work, education, health care, and shopping. The purpose of the Alabama Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan is to establish a vision that supports walking and bicycling as modes of transportation in Alabama. Developed by the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) and stakeholders from across the state, the statewide plan aims to guide investments in bicycle and pedestrian facilities and programs that achieve the greatest improvements within limited available funding. Providing safe bicycle and pedestrian facilities is the overriding focus of the statewide plan and underpins its recommendations. As walking and bicycling have increased across Alabama and the nation, a broad range of policies, plans, guidelines, and standards have been developed to integrate the two modes safely into the overall transportation system. Many of these policies, plans, guidelines, and standards serve as the foundation for the statewide plan and help shape the plan’s key recommendations on pedestrian and bicycle safety, access, and economic development.
