The City of Ames Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan has entered the public input phase, with community members being asked to review the draft and share their thoughts with the city.

According to the city of Ames website, the two-part Walk, Bike, Roll Ames project was put into place to create a bike and pedestrian plan with safety, comfort and ease in mind. There are two parts within the project.

“The first is a far-reaching plan that will identify policies, programs, and projects that will improve walking and biking in Ames, with short-range and long-term recommendations. The second piece will focus on wayfinding, which is a system of signs that helps people get to destinations,” the website states.

Within the plan, there are 77.7 miles of paths and bikeways, 15 miles of new sidewalks and 108 crossing projects. These projects would cost $101.9 million in total.
