Pedestrian Access Study

The MPO undertook this study to work towards a pedestrian system that is accessible to the community regardless of physical ability or handicap. The study provides an inventory of existing pedestrian facilities as of 2010, the condition of those facilities, and provides a mechanism for prioritizing future sidewalk projects within the community to enhance walkability.

As of May 2015, approximately 28 miles of sidewalks have been constructed and an additional 14 miles of sidewalks are in progress. Below are maps of the areas where new sidewalks have been constructed.
