Weldon’s Bicycle + Pedestrian Project Acceleration Plan is funded by the NCDOT Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning Grant Initiative and will identify priority infrastructure, program, and policy recommendations that will establish Weldon as a bicycle and pedestrian-friendly community. The plan will expand on the existing network of sidewalks and trails to recommend bicycle and pedestrian facilities that will connect key transportation corridors, parks, schools, employment centers, and other destinations throughout the community. The plan will also outline action steps to implement plan recommendations.


What is a bicycle and pedestrian project acceleration plan? A project acceleration plan is an abbreviated plan that focuses on priority bicycle, pedestrian, and multimodal project identification and project implementation.

How is this type of plan helpful?

Project acceleration plans focus on efficiently identifying multimodal projects and implementation steps to foster a more walkable, bikeable, and transit-friendly environment in communities that might otherwise have difficulty resourcing or funding a multimodal network plan.

How do we connect to these places?
