In October 2015, the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) began the process to update the 2009 Connecticut Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation Plan and the 2009 Statewide Bicycle Map. In the past six years, the importance of creating bicyclist friendly environments and walkable communities has continued to grow and this update will ensure Connecticut can continue its progress in establishing and enhancing bicycle and pedestrian policies, facilities, and networks.
The Update will be based on an evaluation of the 2009 Plan and Map along with a review of the most up-to-date Federal and State guidelines and policy with respect to bicycle and pedestrian planning and design. The purpose will be to assess the progress that has been made thus far and provide guidance on how to continue to promote the planning and development of walking and bicycling networks as a key component of Connecticut’s transportation system.
