Athens In Motion Bicycle / Pedestrian Master Plan

Updated 8.18.17: The result of the bicyclist / pedestrian demand analysis is a heat map which shows areas of current or potential demand for biking and walking based on proximity to items such as parks, trails/greenways, schools, colleges/universities, commercial centers, and other community amenities. This demand analysis is one of the many layers that will be used to inform the final plan.
