This session will solicit input on Federal leadership role in advancing bike infrastructure and provide an overview of the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) recently published planning and design resources. It will highlight resources such as the Small Town and Rural Multimodal Networks Guide, Achieving Multimodal Networks, Guidebook for Developing Pedestrian and Bicycle Performance Measures, and Accessible Shared Streets.

Information will be organized around the four goals in the U.S. Department of Transportation Strategic Plan for FY 2018-2022: Safety, Infrastructure, Innovation, and Accountability. The session will include a detailed discussion of FHWA’s newest resource, the Guidebook for Measuring Multimodal Network Connectivity. Linkages will also be made between FHWA’s pedestrian and bicycle resources and goals and activities relating to recreational trails and safe routes to school, including funding sources.
