Wisconsin Guide to Pedestrian Best Practices

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 experience.

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 PDF. Additional chapters will be available soon.
