Kansas DOT’s Active Transportation Plan Focuses on Increasing Alternate Ways to Travel

TOPEKA, KS — Increasing active transportation opportunities across Kansas — whether walking, cycling, using a wheelchair, skateboarding, etc. — is the goal of the Kansas Department of Transportation’s (KDOT) newly revised Active Transportation Plan (ATP).

“Providing access to safe, direct, and continuous routes for people whether they are driving, walking, or cycling is essential for a healthy multimodal transportation system,” said Acting Secretary Calvin Reed. “The vision of the ATP is for Kansas to be a place where people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds have safe and convenient active modes of travel available throughout the state.”

The ATP will serve as a guide for KDOT and Kansas communities on how to include and promote active transportation infrastructure when planning roads, bridges, and other infrastructure projects. The plan was developed with extensive input from Kansans and with guidance from KDOT and other state agencies, stakeholders, and partners. National and local experts in planning, design, and safety were included in the plan’s development process.

Funding for active transportation projects is included in the 10-year Eisenhower Legacy Transportation Program, or IKE.
