Small Town and Rural Multimodal Networks Guide

This resource, developed in partnership with the Federal Highway Administration and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota translates existing street design guidance and facility types for bicycle and pedestrian safety and comfort for the smaller scale places not addressed in other guides such as the NACTO Street Design Guide and ITE Walkable Urban Thoroughfares report. The guide provides clear examples of how to interpret and apply design flexibility to improve bicycling and walking conditions. The document presents compelling photographs, visual illustrations and technical diagrams to communicate design issues and solutions in a smaller scale setting.
