Planning and Development
The Small Town and Rural Design Guide is intended to help small towns and rural communities support safe, comfortable, and active travel for people of all ages and abilities. It includes information about different types of facilities (on- and off-road) to improve walkability and bikeability.
Small Town and Rural Multimodal Networks- This Federal Highway Administration document is intended to be a resource for transportation practitioners in small towns and rural communities. It applies existing national design guidelines in a rural setting and highlights small town and rural case studies. It addresses challenges specific to rural areas, recognizes how many rural roadways are operating today, and focuses on opportunities to make incremental improvements despite the geographic, fiscal, and other challenges that many rural communities face.
