Safe Walking & Biking

Our roads aren't always built with everyone in mind. People walking and biking often don't feel safe because they are beside fast-moving cars and traffic. We support communities that are making their roads safe for all users, encouraging people to bike and walk more. 

Key Facts

Building more places to walk and bike safely:

  • Addresses the safety concerns that keep many people from walking or biking to the places they want to go.
  • Provides options for people without cars to get to the places they want to go.
  • Means fewer cars are on the road, making the air cleaner and environment healthier.
  • Contributes to economic development and tourism as visitors have a pleasant and safe way to explore.
