Idaho Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan
The Idaho Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan is a policy document which establishes a statewide vision, goals and strategies for a long-range planning program throughout the state of Idaho. The plan includes a vision/goals, action strategies, and a list of relevant policies, design standards, and statutes. This plan was completed in 1995 and should be updated soon.
