THE FEDERAL ROLE IN....AIDING PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC
The Federal role in aiding pedestrain traffic, as played by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is moving beyond the traditional one of assisting State to construct sidewalks and promote pedestrian safety. While this role will of course continue, FHWA is now also paying attention to pedestrian needs in at least three other areas: improving the existing street and sidewalks systems to better accommodate elderly or physically handicapped pedestrians; improving the liveability (and Safety) of streets in residential neighborhoods; and creating attractive walking environments in dense urban downtowns as an laternative to using the automobile, especially for short trips.
