Bicycling and walking are increasingly important parts of urban transportation. They’re simple, affordable, and healthy ways to get around cities, but they need planning and investment for people to make an easy choice to bike or walk for more trips. Throughout 2022 the Grand Forks and East Grand Forks Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) will be conducting an update to the Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Element. The Element is part of the larger Metropolitan Transportation Plan, which guides planning and investment through 2045. This updated bicycle and pedestrian plan will be used to prioritize improvements in bicycling and walking that will make Grand Forks and East Grand Forks better places to walk and bicycle for all transportation needs.
