CONNECT.  
Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan
The goal of CONNECT. Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan for Northeast Wisconsin is to maintain and improve the momentum of active transportation that has occurred at all levels of government over many years.  The plan focuses on the importance of bicycle and pedestrian safety and connections to schools, residential developments, and places of employment, public transit, parks, and tourist destinations.
 
The project gives a regional perspective of walking and bicycling opportunities along with their associated facilities within Brown, Door, Kewaunee, Florence, Manitowoc, Marinette, Oconto, and Sheboygan counties. Components of the plan include:
 
  • An Inventory of existing facilities;
  • Physical and other impediments to walking and biking in the region; and
  • Strategies to increase the use of walking and bicycling modes as transportation options in the eight northeast Wisconsin counties.
 
To view the complete plan and interactive Story Map, please visit: Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan webpage.
