Bicycle and pedestrian facilities are gradually becoming a meaningful part of the transportation network in Indiana. Valued for their potential health benefits and positive effects on air quality, walking and bicycling now represent the chief non-motorized forms of transportation available for both utilitarian and recreation purposes. As alternate modes of travel, facilities for walking and/or bicycling are effective means of attaining social, environmental, land use and energy conservation goals.
INDOT supports non-motorized modes of travel as a means to increase system efficiency of the existing surface transportation network, reduce congestion, improve air quality, conserve fuel, and promote tourism benefits. INDOT works to remove unnecessary barriers to pedestrian and bicycle travel.
