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.
Among the objectives of the Pedestrian Access Study was a ranking exercise to prioritize sidewalk construction projects in the Tyler city limits. To date Tyler has been awarded multiple grants to expand the sidewalk network in addition to the City's contribution. Below are maps of these sidewalk projects.
