dGC Assists Tennessee Department of Transportation in Actions to Improve Walking, Bicycling and Rolling in Tennessee

Tennessee’s Statewide Active Transportation Plan is about action. It is the first plan focused on improving walking, bicycling, and rolling (i.e., personal mobility devices) in Tennessee since 2005. With growth occurring across the state, the time has never been better for the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) to define a vision for active transportation and draw a map for how to get there.

What makes this plan unique is its emphasis on concrete actions—or, what we need to do to build great walkable and bikeable communities already captured in so many planning efforts across Tennessee. Over the past two decades, TDOT has adapted its policies, programs, and projects to better meet the needs of all transportation system users, particularly pedestrians and bicyclists of all ages and abilities.
