The WAMPO Pathways Plan provides an assessment of existing bicycle/pedestrian facilities and identifies, prioritizes, and recommends future connecting links for bicycle/pedestrian use within the WAMPO planning area including the City of Wichita. The plan incorporates recommendations from the WAMPO Metropolitan Transportation Plan 2035. It also recommends the use of the AASHTO Guide for the Planning, Design and Operation of Pedestrian Facilities as the region’s pedestrian guidelines and standards and calls out the accommodation of pedestrians in all public and private projects.
To further cater the AASHTO guidelines to the region, the plan structures recommendations by defining four pedestrian environments: intolerant, tolerant, supportive, and pedestrian places and provides specific guidelines and strategies for each environment. The plan includes additional non-infrastructural recommendations. Benchmarks are established for monitoring mode split.
