Kentucky Secretary of Transportation James Codell has signed a policy that will ensure non-motorized forms of transportation, such as walking or biking, are factored into all future Kentucky Transportation Cabinet roadway designs.

The new Pedestrian and Bicycle Travel Policy gives roadway planners and designers specific criteria for accommodating pedestrian and bicycle travel. Planners will consider adjacent land use, existing pedestrian traffic, local bike plans, transit stops and public comments in determining how to accommodate non-motorized travel.

In early 2002, the U.S. Department of Transportation issued a guidance document on accommodation of bicycle and pedestrian travel. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has achieved U.S. DOT's goal as outlined in that guidance, Codell said.

The new Kentucky approach aims to improve conditions for walkers and bicyclists and to increase the safety of those modes of travel within the state.
