Draft 2010 Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan

The Bicycle and Pedestrian Subcommittee of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments is in the process of updating the 2006 Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.
This Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan for the National Capital Region identifies the capital improvements, studies, actions, and strategies that the region proposes to carry out by 2035 for major bicycle and pedestrian facilities. This plan is an update to the 2006 Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan for the National Capital Region, which was the first all-new regional plan specifically for bicycle facilities since 1995, and the first-ever regional pedestrian facilities plan.

The Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan for the National Capital Region is intended to be advisory to the CLRP and TIP, and to stand as a resource for planners and the public. In contrast to the CLRP, the Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan includes both funded and unfunded projects – projects in this plan may not yet have funding identified to support their implementation.
We haven't had a chance to review the plan yet. If you would like to comment on the plan you can visit the Draft 2010 Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan blog and post comments there.

The CLRP bike projects list is being updated. The projects listed in Fairfax County are woefully out of date. We understand county and VDOT staff are in the process of updating this list. We'd like to see some on-road bike facilities listed. This is yet another reason for completing a county bicycle master plan.
