Bicycle & Pedestrian Resources in Your Community

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) partners with communities and groups around the State in local bicycle and pedestrian networks. Click here to find out more about MDOT SHA’s Recreational Trails Grants, Transportation Enhancement Program (TEP) or Bikeways Program.

Maryland accommodates alternative modes of transportation, such as walking and bicycling. In recent years, more attention has been given to walking and bicycling as legitimate forms of commuting to promote a more sustainable lifestyle. As a result, yearly federal grants for bicycling and walking projects have doubled since 2008, and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) released policy statements relating to bicycling and walking, complete streets and livable communities. Maryland followed suit by enhancing our bicycling and walking programs. Program improvements include bicycle guidelines, restructured sidewalk programs, enhanced bicycle and pedestrian performance measures, a Complete Streets Policy, new working groups focused on enhancing internal processes, and bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure.
