ACHIEVING MULTIMODAL NETWORKS
APPLYING DESIGN FLEXIBILITY & REDUCING CONFLICTS
FHWA-HEP-16-055 Aug 2016
This resource provides practical real-world planning and design information to help communities achieve connected pedestrian and bicycle networks. These networks help people of all ages and abilities get where they need to go, including to and from jobs, school, grocery stores, health care, recreation, and transit. Complete multimodal networks enhance access to opportunity for everyone and help reconnect communities.
The techniques highlighted in this resource draw from a broad range of existing national design guidelines and references. They improve safety for all roadway users, and at the same time make walking and biking for transportation more comfortable, thereby encouraging more people to view these modes as viable transportation choices.
The Federal Highway Administration encourages its partners and stakeholders to use this information not only to inform the planning and project design process at the local, regional, and State level, but also to update national design guidelines and references.
