university region non-motorized plan
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) developed a Regional Non-Motorized Transportation Plan for the University Region that:
• Documents the existing and proposed network
• Identifies opportunities to enhance non-motorized transportation
• Helps prioritize non-motorized investment
• Fosters cooperative planning across municipal/county boundaries and continue to coordinate these efforts
For MDOT, this document serves as a critical piece for context-sensitive planning and development along with guidance on filling gaps along or across MDOT-owned trunk lines and focusing resources. At the community level, this plan provides tools, actions, and recommendations to assist in identifying and improving key corridors that serve both a local and regional need within the greater non-motorized network.
