GUIDELINES FOR BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN FACILITIES: FIRST-YEAR ACTIVITIES. INTERIM REPORT

This report describes the tasks conducted during the first year of a two-year study to develop guidelines for bicycle and pedestrian facilities on both existing and future roadways in Texas. The tasks were concentrated in four basic activity areas: 1) assessment of current practices; 2) collection of citizen and other agency recommendations; 3) assessment of various procedures and facilities; and 4) development of draft guidelines. Some of the first-year tasks include: interviews with selected officials and community leaders; a survey of individuals, agencies and organizations; collection of recommendations from four advisory panels; assessment of existing facilities and available planning procedures; an analysis of various planning factors; and the development of new guidelines for bicycle accommodations on roadways which are under or nearing construction. The first-year findings will be used to develop a draft of the preliminary guidelines, the primary product of this research study.
