Communities that are walkable and bicycle friendly have stronger local economies, better air quality, improved public safety and citizens that are more active socially and physically. The MPO continues to support bicycle and pedestrian projects that improve livability and sustainability. There are now 100 miles of bikeways in the Lexington Area. Many sidewalk projects are also underway (see our projects page).
The MPO’s Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan (BPMP) was adopted in 2018. The focus of the plan is building a connected network that is safe and comfortable for all ages and abilities. The plan includes maps and recommendations for bikeways, sidewalks and trails as well as policies, programs and infrastructure improvements.

The committee meets at noon on the first Friday of each month at 101 East Vine Street, Lexington, KY 40507. View our calender.
