The Bicycle Plan was adopted by the Jefferson County Planning Commission in June 2012. The plan was designed to serve as the blueprint for making improvements to the unincorporated Jefferson County bicycle network with the goal of enhancing the multimodal transportation system through the implementation of safe and convenient on-street and off-street facilities.

Since the adoption of the Bicycle Plan in 2012, industry standards and best practices have changed significantly, and the existing Bike Plan has become outdated. Also, the need and desire for greater mobility options by residents and visitors has increased, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. To accommodate for these changes, Jefferson County Transportation and Engineering pursued and was awarded a Transportation Improvement Program Grant to update the county’s bike plan, and selected Toole Design Group to lead the project. As the Bicycle Plan update progresses, major milestones and opportunities for public engagement will be posted here.
