KYOVA Bicycle, Pedestrian and Complete Streets Planning
KYOVA plans for all modes of transportation including bicycle, pedestrian, and other non-motorized modes and frequently develops planning studies to evaluate infrastructure dedicated to those non-motorized forms of transportation. These studies can include looking at the feasibility of bikes lanes and bike paths, planning crosswalks, evaluating the safety of bike and pedestrian infrastructure, and making recommendations for improvements to those facilities.
KYOVA also makes funding available to local government entities for implementation of these types of projects through its suballocated funds. More information on those funds can be found under the Funding Opportunities tab at the top of the KYOVA homepage.
Complete Streets are roadways designed to safely, comfortably, and equitably accommodate all users, including motorists, cyclists, pedestrians, micromobility users, transit and school bus riders, delivery and service personnel, freight haulers, and emergency responders. Complete Street policies are set at the state, regional, and local levels and are frequently supported by roadway design guidelines Click Here
KYOVA has developed a policy to promote and support the development of Complete Streets in the region. The KYOVA Complete Streets Policy provides a framework for considering accommodations for all users when planning improvements to the region’s transportation system.
