slider-bikepeddesigntreatmentsThe Hillsborough County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) considers the safety of its citizens paramount. In response to these safety concerns and the need to provide more efficient use of existing roadway rights-of-way, the MPO strives to provide an environment that encourages balance between conventional (single occupant private vehicles and other transportation modes) and non-conventional (walking, bicycling and transit patronage) modes of transportation.

The MPO, using engineering consultant resources, has developed guidelines for overall safe pedestrian crossing treatments for at-grade, overpass and underpass crossings; and developed of a policy and guidelines for institutionalizing the inclusion of bicycle lanes during the resurfacing of local government roadways. This report details the results of these investigations and provides matrices and background documentation that should encourage transportation professionals to consider the implementation of appropriate pedestrian crossings and bicycle lanes on existing roadways.
