Planning and Designing for Bicycles

Bicycle accommodations are supported by federal and state legislation, policies and practices. TxDOT follows its Roadway Design Manual and guidelines developed by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO). All state and federally funded transportation projects are constructed in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. In addition, TxDOT completed its first bicycle planning document in 2015, called Strategic Direction Report: Opportunities for TxDOT’s Bicycle Program.
