Ann Arbor Area Campaign for Active Transportation
In July, 2008 the City of Ann Arbor joined with local and regional partners to participate in a national initiative to promote Active Transportation, coordinated by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy. The Campaign for Active Transportation seeks to secure federal funding for non-motorized transportation projects in communities across the country. The Campaign's success depends on the inclusion of active transportation provisions in the SAFETEA-LU transportation reauthorization bill.
Ann Arbor's proposal includes three priority projects from the Non-Motorized Transportation Plan 2007: completing active transportation routes by adding and connecting bike lanes and sidewalks, and pursuing pedestrian crossing improvements set forth in the Plan; constructing safe crossing options at highway crossings; and launching the Allen Creek Greenway while completing the Border to Border Trail.
