Take advantage of opportunities to create and complete ped-bike networks through maintenance
Find ways to make facility improvements for pedestrians and bicyclists during resurfacing and other maintenance projects. Expanding and improving existing roads and facilities to build biking and walking networks as part of regular and routine resurfacing and other maintenance programs can be a low cost alternative. Ensure compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
How do we know we have taken advantage of opportunities to create networks?
Develop and adopt sidewalk inspection and maintenance criteria. Create systems to ensure that routine maintenance projects are used as low-cost opportunities to retrofit for improved ped-bike safety.
