Greenways Incorporated provides a broad range of bicycle planning services to clients such as private communities, municipalities, and regional entities. Our bicycle planning services include local bicycle corridor facility studies, regional master planning efforts, and everything in between.
Our detailed action plans provide a step by step process for efficiently developing a bicycle friendly community. We critically examine roadways and off-road corridors to determine feasibility and appropriate bicycle facilities. We strive to connect destinations and determine safe and accessible bicycle routing. We also provide the most cost-effective solutions for our clients. For example, on-road bicycle facilities may only require restriping on wider roads. Multi-use greenways may become components of publicly-owned utility corridors.
The comprehensive bicycle network is an essential component of our bicycle planning and becomes important for overall long range transportation planning. We design bicycle networks that provide appropriate facilities for all skill levels of cyclists from young children and recreational cyclists to commuter and competitive cyclists. These networks may combine a combination of off-road and on-road bicycle facilities. Connected bicycle route networks provide an increased quality of life in the community by providing viable, safe, alternative transportation options along with recreation and healthy-living opportunities.
Greenways Incorporated also assists clients in identifying design standards, policy recommendations, program initiatives, and funding sources. Our bicycle action plans guide communities through a step by step process of identifying priority projects, phasing development, recommending appropriate staffing and duties, providing operations and management techniques, and financing development.
