Wyoming's Bicycle/Pedestrian Program

Since the passage of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has adopted a strategy to integrate bicycling and walking into the nation’s transportation system.

WYDOT intends to integrate consideration of the needs of pedestrians and bicyclists in its planning and project development processes to produce a transportation system with true modal choices. This plan will not propose specific improvement projects to better accommodate bicycling and walking in the Wyoming transportation system. Instead, it provides general principles and guidance for WYDOT to provide for and improve bicycle and pedestrian transportation. This plan also provides guidance for local governments in Wyoming for developing their own bicycle and pedestrian plans and facilities.

The WYDOT Bicycle/Pedestrian Program will continue to be a clearinghouse for current planning information and design guidance for non-motorized transportation facilities. The Program staff will be available to assist other WYDOT programs and local communities in facility selection and design.
