CITY OF FRANKLIN BICYCLE & PEDESTRIAN WAY MASTER PLAN

Franklin, Indiana

PROJECT SUMMARY

The City of Franklin has made tremendous progress planning, designing, and constructing bicycle and pedestrian facilities over the past ten years.  The Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan will be a comprehensive assessment of all bicycle and pedestrian facilities and will be a critical guide to the city for future development of the bicycle and pedestrian system.  This master plan will engage residents and community leaders to provide recommendations that seek to improve pedestrian and bicycle circulation, connections and opportunities. The plan’s recommendations will focus on infrastructure improvements, but will also address policy and program updates to support and encourage pedestrian and bicycle travel.

The planning process will include a review of existing conditions and documents, public input, and recommendations for infrastructure improvements and policy changes.
