WalkBikeNC Plan: Where Walking and Biking Become Part of our Everyday Lives

  • 2/21/2014

The North Carolina Department of Transportation recently completed and adopted the WalkBikeNC Plan, North Carolina's Comprehensive Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan. The Plan was developed through a collaboration between state agencies, local governments, and private entities. 

Built around a framework that addresses mobility, safety, economic development, health and wellness, and the environment, the Plan provides a blueprint for future collaboration that will transform the State into one where walking and bicycling become a part of our everyday lives. Specifically, the Plan recommends an update to the state bicycle route system originally developed in the 1970s. In addition, a health impact assessment and economic analysis were conducted to determine the significant impact to health and economy with the implementation of the Plan.
