HIKING and BIKING RESOURCES

Welcome to Maryland State Highway Administration’s non-motorized transportation link!

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 a new Pedestrian Access to Transit program, revisions to walking and bicycling performance measures and much more! Policy advancements include a complete streets policy and new bicycling, policies among many others. For more information on SHA’s progress please see the 2011 Bicycling and Walking Annual Report.

SHA partners with communities and groups around the state interested in establishing or improving bicycle and pedestrian networks in their area.
