Bryan District Active Transportation Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning


Background

Active Transportation includes any mode of self-powered travel. While bicycling and walking are generally thought of as Active Transportation, rollerblades, skateboards and, most recently, pedal assist electric bikes are also popular active transportation modes.

Improved active transportation facilities will help reduce congestion and improve mobility for drivers, while increasing safety for active users.

The TxDOT Bryan District has hosted Active Transportation outreach events since 2012, and coordinates comprehensive planning on an ongoing basis with many cities in the ten-county district area.

Partners

The 2018 Active Transportation event was hosted by TxDOT in partnership with Texas A&M University, the City of College Station, the City of Bryan, and the Bryan/College Station Metropolitan Planning Organization.  

Proposed Improvements

TxDOT requested feedback on potential improvements to bicycle and pedestrian facilities, which included the following:

  • Shared Use Paths
  • Cycle Tracks
  • Improved Intersections
  • Shaded Sidewalks/Benches
  • On-street Bike Lanes
  • Adding Sidewalks
  • Safety Lighting
  • Audible Warnings at Signals
  • Benches and/or Amenities
