Multi-Choice Transportation System


The City has developed a City-wide Sidewalk and Bicycle Plan, known as a multi-choice transportation system. It provides travel choices other than a car. It will provide a framework of sidewalks, walkways, trails, paths, promenades and bikeways. These allow people the choice to travel throughout the City without using their cars. Citizens of Lynnwood have consistently stated the importance of such multi-choice transportation systems. 

The pedestrian plan includes a total of 104 miles of sidewalks, paths, and trails. 85 miles or 82% is complete today. The bicycle system includes a total of 70 miles of bike lanes/routes, of which 12 miles or 17% is complete today. A ranking criteria prioritizes the missing links. This will help the City determine where investments are needed.

Various pedestrian roadway cross sections and associated costs have been developed. These include concrete sidewalks (with and without planter strips), asphalt walkways and bike facility options (dedicated lanes vs. shared lanes). 

Community Members comments are greatly appreciated regarding the Multi-Choice Transportation System.

Please note: The City is currently in the process of replacing the Multi-Choice Transportation System with the Active and Accessible Plan. Until the Active Accessible Plan is finalized, the Multi-Choice Transportation System is still the City's current plan.
