Northwest Arkansas Bicycle/Pedestrian Master Plan

The Northwest Arkansas Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan was adopted by the RPC/Policy Committee on December 1, 2015 and is considered part of the MTP. The full plan document can be found at http://www.nwabikepedplan.com. The NWARPC, with the support of communities and advocates throughout Northwest Arkansas has led the development of this Plan. The purpose of this Plan is to build upon previous regional bicycle and pedestrian initiatives, including the 37- mile Razorback Regional Greenway, in setting a clear path for Northwest Arkansas to link its communities and regional destinations with a world-class transportation network.

This Plan is a regional network of bicycle and pedestrian on-road and off-road trail facilities and routes within 32 communities of Northwest Arkansas in Benton and Washington Counties. The planning team led a comprehensive regional planning process involving extensive public involvement and community participation, including the development of 25 Individual Community Action Plans for communities with a population of over 1,000.

Upon the completion of the development of these plans, all 25 communities were able to adopt their local Plan and endorsed the Regional Plan.
