MACOG Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning Focus

The Michiana Area Council of Governments is responsible for regional bicycle and pedestrian planning.  In 1993, MACOG began developing a bicycle and pedestrian plan as one component of its Transportation Plan.  MACOG continues to work with its bike and pedestrian committees to further refine the plan, identifying and implementing projects, based on the following focus:

The 2035 Transportation Plan contains a listing of proposed bicycle and pedestrian facilities in Elkhart and St. Joseph Counties.  Many of these projects are adjoined to highway projects and may be implemented in conjunction with a highway project.  Other projects do not adjoin an existing highway project and are included in the illustrative projects listing.
