Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Practices. Topic 51-04. Practices for Selecting Pedestrian and Bicycle Projects

State departments of transportation (DOTs) manage several federal and state funding sources that can be used for the provision of pedestrian and bicycle projects. Guidance and tools have been developed for use in prioritizing pedestrian and bicycle projects, but it is not clear which methods states may be using and with which funding programs. Pedestrian and bicycle improvements can be stand-alone projects but are often included in larger corridor, intersection, or other types of projects. It can be difficult to determine the extent to which various individual state and federal funding programs are used and to understand state processes for prioritizing and selecting pedestrian and bicycle investments. The objective of this synthesis is to document DOT practices for the selection of pedestrian and bicycle projects. The research will exclude design elements.
