   About the Plan

The goal of the Bicycle & Pedestrian Master Plan update is to improve safety and accessibility in Fayette and Jessamine Counties for people of all ages and skill levels. The plan will contain maps and recommendations for bikeways, sidewalks, crosswalks, greenway trails, and related policies, programs, and infrastructure.

The Lexington Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), in conjunction with the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government (LFUCG) and the Jessamine County Fiscal Court, has hired Alta Planning + Design, a national bicycle and planning firm, to prepare the 2017 update of the Lexington Area MPO Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan.
