The 2009 Franklin County Bikeway Plan Update supersedes the Franklin County Bikeway Plan completed in 1993. The focus of the 1993 Bikeway Plan was the development and implementation of the 44 mile Franklin County Bikeway network consisting of on and off-road bicycle routes located in the central section of Franklin County near the Connecticut River. This initial part of the bikeway network is now constructed; the 2009 Bikeway Plan Update identifies potential expansions of the Bikeway throughout Franklin County and connections to neighboring counties and states.
The primary goal of the Franklin County Bikeway Plan Update is to plan for a transportation system that encourages bicycling as a viable mode of transportation and reduces automobile trips. In addition, the plan recognizes and supports bicycling for recreation, physical fitness, and for conservation purposes as a part of a sustainable transportation system.
