PLAN OVERVIEW

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.
