Maryland is committed to providing accommodations for alternative modes of transportation such as walking and bicycling. In recent years, at a national level more and more attention has been given to the walking and bicycling as legitimate forms of transportation in an effort to promote a more sustainable and livable lifestyle. As a result, yearly federal grants for bicycling and walking projects have doubled since 2008 and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has released a series of policy statements relating to bicycling and walking, complete streets and livable communities. Maryland has also followed suit in recent years by enhancing many of our bicycling and walking programs and policies. Such program improvements include new bicycle guidelines, restructured sidewalk programs, enhanced bicycle and pedestrian performance measures, a Complete Streets Policy, the institution of several new working groups and committees focused on enhancing internal processes and practices related to implementing bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure, and more.
