The Wisconsin Guide to Pedestrian Best Practices provides detailed
design, planning and program information for improving all aspects of
the pedestrian environment.
Numerous national and state pedestrian facilities design guides and
manuals were reviewed and incorporated into this guide, especially
into the Facilities Design chapter. The Guide for the Development of
Pedestrian Facilities published by the American Association of State
Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), the Manual of Uniform
Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) from the Federal Highway
Administration, the ADA Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) from the U.S.
Access Board, and the Wisconsin Department of Transportationís
Facility Development Manual (FDM) were significant sources for
technical and regulatory requirements. Chapter 5: Designing Pedestrian
Facilities, is intended to bring these and several other standard
references of professional practice together to apply to Wisconsinís
The guide serves as a companion document to the Wisconsin
Pedestrian Policy Plan 2020 to assist in the implementation of the
goals, objectives and actions of the plan and serve as a reference or
guidebook for state and local officials.
The guide chapters are available as Adobe PDFs .
Additional chapters will be available soon.
