A MANUAL FOR PLANNING PEDESTRAIN FACILITIES

The manual includes the basic concepts in pedestrian trip generation and movement, and basic types of facilities available to the planner, categorized by horizontal, vertical, and time separations. Each of the types of impacts to users and nonusers of pedestrian facilities is discused. The interrelationships among facility characteristics and the various levels of impacts on pedestrians, motorists, abutting property occupants, and the community in general are presented. An approach to general economic cost estimating in terms of both construction cost and continuing operating and maintenance costs is described. Several means of converting these costs to a figure useful in comparing facilities and evaluating benefits are given.
