The Complete Transportation Guidebook is a reference for integrating sustainable transportation practices into transportation planning, scoping, and design throughout ADOT’s project development process. The guidebook provides strategies and techniques for identifying transportation choices that connect communities and enhance economic opportunity while maximizing the efficiency of limited resources.
The Bicycle and Pedestrian Count Strategy Plan is the first step for ADOT to implement a bicycle and pedestrian count program. The program is designed to support safety assessments, performance measurement, and reporting such as key bicycle and pedestrian indicators and targets established in the Statewide Bicycle Pedestrian Plan Update.
2018 Bicyclist Safety Action Plan Update uses a data-driven approach to assess bicyclist-motorist crashes on the State Highway System (SHS) during the 2012-2016 period. The plan identifies steps, actions, and potential countermeasures that, upon implementation and over time, will measurably reduce bicyclist crashes, injuries, and fatalities.
The 2017 Pedestrian Safety Action Plan provides a strategic action plan that effectively focuses resources to reduce the greatest number of severe injury and fatal pedestrian-motor vehicle crashes on the Arizona State Highway System.
Planning for and constructing accommodations for bicycling and walking and improving safety, education, and enforcement programs are critical in increasing the mobility of pedestrians and bicyclists. One of the underlying principles in planning for bicycling and walking is to provide a system that allows users significant mode choices, and to make bicycling and walking a more attractive, viable option for transportation. This includes creating a non-motorized network comprised of on-street facilities, off-street facilities, and end of trip facilities. Education and enforcement programs also enhance alternative forms of transportation.
