Bikeway Prioritization [MORPC]



As part of the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) update, MORPC has developed a draft bikeway prioritization methodology for the region. This methodology helps MORPC to prioritize future bikeways at a regional level. We welcome any comments on the methodology and map by January 18, 2012 to tplan@morpc.org.

MORPC plans for the development of bikeways as a component of a multimodal regional transportation plan. The goal of the bikeway planning effort is to create a network of bikeways that provide transportation between Delaware and Franklin counties, Bloom and Violet townships in Fairfield County, and Pataskala in Licking County. (This is the MORPC planning area.)
The development of a regional bicycle transportation system requires the following collaborative efforts:
  • Local governments provide data on existing and committed bikeways.
  • The bicycling community provides desired routes.
  • Bicycle organizations and public agencies provide technical information on bikeway design, location, barriers, and the overall cycling environment.
