The League Acknowledges Tennessee Progress

Fresh off a successful Re-imagining Broad Street event in Memphis, advocates in Tennessee get a new Bicycle & Pedestrian policy at TDOT (helmet tip, Bike Walk TN). The updated policy:

* now applies to local governments managing transportation projects with federal funding as well as TDOT staff and contractors
* requires use of AASHTO and TDOT bicycle and pedestrian facility design standards
* requires that accommodations for cyclists and pedestrians must be integrated into all federally or state funded transportation projects
* requires that federally funded bridge replacement or rehabilitation projects include bicycle and pedestrian accommodations
