Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan

The Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan (BPP) represents a coordinated approach between the George Washington Regional Commission (GWRC) / The Fredericksburg Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (FAMPO) and its local jurisdictions to provide information and guidance, as well as to encourage and facilitate the development of a safe, interconnected, regional network of on-road as well as off-road bicycle and pedestrian corridors and related facilities.  It is to preserve and enhance the bicycling and pedestrian network, to improve safety, attractiveness and overall viability of cycling and walking as legitimate transportation alternatives to the transportation system.  The BPP is reviewed and updated every four years in conjunction with the update of the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP).
