What is the purpose of the Plan?
The state law (RCW 47.06.100) calls for the Washington State Bicycle Facilities and Pedestrian Walkways Plan to include strategies for:
- Improving connections
- Increasing coordination
- Reducing traffic congestion
It also calls for an assessment of statewide bicycle and pedestrian transportation needs. This Plan satisfies the federal requirement for a long-range bicycle transportation and pedestrian walkways plan.
What is in the Plan?
Washington’s Statewide Goal is to increase bicycling and walking while reducing injuries and deaths. The Plan sets a goal of decreasing collisions by five percent per year for the next 20 years, while doubling the amount of biking and walking. This Plan also establishes objectives and performance measures in each of the State’s five transportation policy areas (as established in state law, RCW 47.04.280).
