Morehead Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan

Morehead Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan

Morehead and Rowan County, KY

Banks Engineering is assisting Morehead Tourism with the development of a bicycle and pedestrian master plan to facilitate the development of recreational and commuter facilities throughout the city and county.  The master plan includes consideration of multiple transportation modes – pedestrians, bicyclists, mountain bikers, off-road vehicles, and recreational equine riders.  All of these users are important in bolstering increased tourism and economic development in the community.  Project elements include the following:

  • Inventory of existing trails in the county, including the Daniel Boone National Forest
  • Identification of origins-destinations such as parks, neighborhoods, shopping centers, schools, and Cave Run Lake
  • Field reconnaissance to determine feasible routes
  • Development of an interactive website to receive and share information with the public
  • Coordination with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, the local Bicycle-Pedestrian Task Force, Morehead State University, and the Triplett Valley Rails to Trails Group
  • Recommendations for proposed improvements with project phasing
  • Cost estimates and funding assistance

Banks Engineering enlisted the Gateway Area Development District (GWADD) for GIS, mapping services, and funding application assistance to reduce the program cost.
