Fort Worth adopted an Active Transportation Plan in April that identifies priority pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure projects for funding and implementation.
Pedestrian infrastructure needs are addressed in the plan primarily through the identification, evaluation and ranking of new sidewalk projects.
New sidewalk projects refer exclusively to those projects that fill a gap in the sidewalk network.
The city says sidewalk gaps were identified through a citywide inventory, evaluated based on criteria such as safety, equity and proximity to transit and community facilities, and then ranked for implementation.MORE NEWS: Southlake Ranks 20th 'Best Small City In America'; Keller & Flower Mound Most Affordable
