Highlighting Multimodal Roadway Design
and Green Infrastructure

FHWA recently published a Successes in Stewardship article, which outlines a set of case studies highlighting multimodal roadway design and green infrastructure throughout the United States. The case studies focus on efforts to promote connected pedestrian and bicycle networks through attempts to mitigate flood risks, establish public-private partnerships, improve multimodal network connectivity, and highlight State and locally driven projects. Overall, the article outlines effective examples of improvements to bicycle and pedestrian networks that incorporate both green infrastructure and resiliency benefits.

Improving School Commutes for
Student Pedestrians and CyclistsTrolley

The Safe Routes to School National Partnership released an infobrief, “Keep Calm and Carry On to School: Improving Arrival and Dismissal for Walking and Biking” on how schools and school districts can improve the safety and comfort of school arrival and dismissal for students walking and bicycling. The brief identifies strategies and techniques in the categories of engineering; operations and programming; and education and enforcement. Key recommendations include clear separation and delineation of modes, staggered dismissal of students, and "walk-on-in" programs that reduce congestion by having parent pickup locations a short walking distance from the school.
