Active Transportation Planning at the Regional, Local, and District-Level

Communities across Alabama and Mississippi have been planning, designing and building active transportation networks to achieve goals from improving public health and conserving open space, to revitalizing downtowns and connecting people to opportunity. This session highlights several innovative bicycle and pedestrian planning processes and their results. Case studies from Birmingham AL, Brandon MS, Montgomery AL, the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), and Huntsville AL provide a wide array of tools and strategies for bicycle and pedestrian planning at a regional, local or district-level. Learn about how public engagement is driving Montgomery’s regional active transportation plan, how Birmingham has gone from plan to implementation in five years, how Brandon has outlined their plan for bicycle and pedestrian connectivity both at the regional and local levels, how UAB reimagines their campus with complete streets, and how Huntsville seized the opportunity to build Alabama’s first separated bike lane.
