Planning Projects

 

Early in the pilot BWTC awarded $.5 million for eight planning studies including comprehensive city-wide plans, corridor plans, and area-wide plans for connections to transit. All planning studies awarded to jurisdictions are complete. Some of the planning studies resulted in projects funded to implementation through BWTC.

 

In 2011 Bike Walk Twin Cities issued an RFP for development of series of planning studies, plan sets, and feasibility studies. Project locations were identified by jurisdictions and ranked by external evaluators to determine the most critical network improvements. Up to twelve studies will be completed in 2011 and 2012. Plan sets will create numerous feasibility and "shovel-ready" projects for future competitive funding opportunities.
