Our Longer Term Policy Priorities

Active Transportation Plan

The Active Transportation Plan details how pathways for walking and rolling in the state will be connected. It was last updated in 2008. A draft of part one of the plan is available now for comment until noon on Feb. 15. Part One discusses the current infrastructure, what could be done to reduce accidents & fatalities, and the overall cost of connecting the network statewide. Part Two, which is due to be done next year, will cover specific projects and policies, as next steps for implementation. Interesting quote in the report: “for the approximate cost of one Seattle-area freeway interchange, approximately 300 miles of trail could be constructed”. Pedestrian and bike infrastructure is dramatically cheaper than auto infrastructure.
