The 2015 Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Greenways Master Plan (BiPed) Update refines and expands the original 2006 BiPed Plan. The plan addresses the immediate and long-term needs for bicycling and walking in the Greensboro MPO Area by identifying recommended future bicycle, pedestrian, trail and greenway facility improvements, policy and program enhancements, operations and maintenance activities, and implementation steps. Both the MPO Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) and the Greensboro City Council have adopted the BiPed Plan Update. Read the MPO resolution or City Council resolution.
Revisions include noting accomplishments since the 2006 BiPed Plan adoption, streamlined content for easier reading, analysis based on current conditions, and updated BiPed priorities. The BiPed Plan Update looks ahead 20 years to 2035.
The 2015 BiPed Plan Update conforms to the findings and policy direction of the 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), which provides a vision for future transportation improvements in the Greensboro MPO Area. The BiPed Plan Update also incorporates the recommendations and findings of bicycle and pedestrian plans of local MPO municipalities, including the Town of Oak Ridge's Comprehensive Pedestrian Transportation Plan and the Town of Pleasant Garden's Comprehensive Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation Plan.
As the first step toward implementing the BiPed Plan Update, the TAC adopted a Complete Streets Policy for the MPO, which can be reviewed here.
The 2015 BiPed Plan Update is divided into four chapters: an introductory chapter and three modal chapters for bicycling, walking, and trails and greenways. The entire final document is available below, along with an Executive Summary for a high-level overview of the plan's findings. Due to the file size of the full plan documents, chapters have been split for easier downloading and viewing.
