Active Transportation Infrastructure

A bike lane painted in white on a divided street, with an office building beyond the street.

This indicator measures the amount of active transportation infrastructure (e.g., bike routes, bike lanes, and other forms of bike infrastructure; sidewalks) in miles in Champaign-Urbana. The amount of active transportation infrastructure in the community, in miles, provides additional information about residents’ ability to get around the community without needing a car, and, to some degree, how much active transportation is valued and prioritized in the community.

The total mileage of bicycle facilities (“bicycle facilities” includes the following forms of bike infrastructure: shared-use paths, divided shared-use paths, bike paths, bike lanes, shared lane markings, shared bike/parking lanes, and bike routes) has significantly increased since 2010.

There is no trend data for sidewalk mileage: 2016 was the first year that sidewalk mileage data was collected and released.

This data is collected and released in several CUUATS documents: the annual Long Range Transportation Plan Report Cards, released annually; the Champaign County Greenways & Trails Plan; and the Sidewalk Network Inventory and Assessment for the Champaign Urbana Urbanized Area.
