The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration has recently released two new publications to help practitioners improve multimodal transportation networks. These new publications offer resources for a variety of places, including rural and small town locations as well as medium and larger cities.
- Guidebook for Measuring Multimodal Network Connectivity: This resource focuses on measuring pedestrian and bicycle network connectivity and incorporating connectivity analysis into the transportation planning process.
- Case Studies in Realizing Co-Benefits of Multimodal Roadway Design and Gray and Green Infrastructure: This report is intended to provide information to encourage agencies interested in making improvements to their pedestrian and bicycle networks that also provide green infrastructure and resiliency benefits.
