The Bicycle and Pedestrian Prioritization Tool consists of two components – pedestrian districts and a linear network.

The pedestrian districts were created to highlight and address the fact that pedestrian movement is more fluid than linear, and that investments in pedestrian infrastructure should be made where there are greater densities of people living or working and in closest proximity to pedestrian generating destinations.

The linear network connects the pedestrian districts via major travel routes and makes connections to activity generators outside of designated districts. The basis for the linear network was that these longer routes are attractive to bicyclists and manageable to travel by bicycle, whereas walking would be less feasible.

Bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure improvement projects proposed on these networks will be prioritized for funding. A complete description of the Bicycle and Pedestrian Priority Network can be found in the Bicycle & Pedestrian Action Plan.
