Technical prioritization and detailed needs analyses have resulted in various low-cost improvements which in turn has inspired more funding for pedestrian improvements.


This webinar will demonstrate how engineers in Knox County, Tennessee partnered with the local school system and health departments to focus on the county highway system. This webinar was developed by the Pedestrian and Bicycle Standing Committee.



  • Develop new prioritization metrics for school-area pedestrian improvements based on Knox County’s experience.
