Bicycle and pedestrian planning and design is one of our long-term strengths. Alta’s comprehensive services for multimodal-oriented plans and projects include idea development from the conceptual stages all the way through to happy communities enjoying the finished project.
We start with analysis elements such as feasibility and traffic studies, opportunities/constraints, accurate cost estimations and funding strategies, user projection, future benefit analysis and more. We help with public involvement, agency coordination, policy recommendations, and implementation strategies. We can design the project, produce the maps and graphics, and coordinate all aspects of design. When the bikeway or walkway project or system is in place, we can monitor use, assess project success, and consult on upgrades or adjustments.
We’ve designed forward-thinking, successful bicycle and pedestrian plans and projects throughout the world. Whether it’s making an urban core more accessible, creating a network of routes to get riders safely out of the city, or improving cycling and walking opportunities in rural areas, we have the knowledge, the experience, and enthusiasm to make communities better places for communities.
