The Woodlands Township has initiated its first-ever Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan that will evaluate the current walking, running and bicycling network, assess gaps and needs, and explore expanding the existing network through project recommendations that may include more interconnected pathways, drainage/utility easement connections, and potential bike lanes. This Plan will support integrated mobility options by providing non-motorized vehicle solutions for getting around The Woodlands Township without contributing to overall vehicular congestion.
This planning effort kicked off in October 2015 and is expected to take at least nine months to complete the overall Plan. This website will provide documentation of the work performed on this Plan during the nine-month process. Keep checking back to see the progress.
Public Comment Period
The Woodlands Township Board of Directors recently received the draft Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan which is available below for online viewing. The Township is soliciting additional public input on the proposed plan and recommendations through a formal online survey which will be available to the public September 9 through September 23, 2016.
A Steering Committee has been created for this planning effort to guide the direction of this Plan to ensure proper buy-in and support as project recommendations are made. The Steering Committee is made up of at least one representative from each Village Association, Bike the Woodlands Coalition, Township staff, and representation from The Woodlands Development Company. The Steering Committee will meet at least three times during the nine-month planning process.
