I am seeking examples of DOTs or specific highway/corridor projects where
active transportation needs were incorporating into the purpose and need
statements of federally-funded projects going through the environmental
process. I'm not necessarily looking for P&N from standalong bike/ped
projects, rather multi-modal projects where the active transportation
facilities were included along with a congestion management or similar
The goal is to make recommendations at the DOT, MPO and community level to
include these elements in the purpose and need so they are less likely to
be eliminated and deemed "amenities" if there are difficulties in
navigating the environmental process.
Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.
