In an effort to promote clean, healthy and affordable alternative forms of travel, the federal government and PennDOT heartily endorse planning - for and implementing bicycle and pedestrian projects and improvements. This goes beyond sidewalks, curb ramps and recreational paths, though those functions are often interrelated. Bicycle and pedestrian modes must be thought of as a contiguous network interwoven with the entire transportation system. To that end, the Berks County Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation Plan 2020
serves as the non-motorized component of the overall Berks County Long-Range Transportation Plan
From mid-2018 to early 2020, the MPO staff worked with the Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation Plan Advisory Committee to update the 2010 Plan. The result of that cooperative effort was the Berks County Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation Plan 2020. The Plan was adopted by the MPO on July 16, 2020.
