What is a Pedestrian Master Plan

The Louisville Pedestrian Master Plan is a long- term action plan to make Louisville the world’s safest and most appealing community for pedestrians. The plan expands on the 2008 Louisville Community Walkability Plan which has outlined the policies, programs, design criteria, and projects that will further enhance pedestrian safety, comfort, and access in all of Louisville’s neighborhoods (see appendix L). Through the Pedestrian Master Plan, Louisville will expand the pedestrian system to over 600 miles with a total cost of 50 million or an average of 2.5 million per year which will make its transportation system more environmentally, economically, and socially sustainable.
