URBAN BIKEWAY DESIGN GUIDE


Bicycle & Pedestrian planning issues are actively being discussed in local municipalities.
The FHWA urges transportation engineers and planners to use the guidelines issued by the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO). The purpose of the NACTO Urban Bikeway Design Guide is to provide cities with state-of-the-practice solutions that can help create complete streets that are safe and enjoyable for bicyclists.

HARBOR BRIDGE PROJECT


The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), Corpus Christi District, is determining whether the Harbor Bridge, which spans the Corpus Christi Ship Channel at U.S. 181, should be replaced. A Feasibility Study completed by TxDOT in 2003 concluded that U.S. 181 and the Harbor Bridge must be improved to maintain a safe and efficient transportation corridor.

TRANSPORTATION NEEDS SURVEY


As part of the planning process, we provide transportation information on the condition of our system and then seek public input for improving the transportation network’s performance. The community’s feedback and diverse viewpoints enrich the evaluation and collaboration of our programs in an open and meaningful involvement of interested parties.
