Biking and Walking

Bike Edmonds ferry

The City of Edmonds supports walking and biking as safe, healthy and attractive alternatives to driving. In order to make biking and walking easier, the City updates the Walkway Plan and Bicycle Plan every six years (as part of the Transportation Plan Update). The Walkway Plan and Bicycle Plan were recently updated in 2015 (sections of the 2015 Transportation Plan). The plan identifies many different walkway and bicycle projects that, when funded, would improve non-motorized transportation conditions. The Walkway Map and Bicycle Map show the existing facilities as well as the proposed facilities that the City would incorporate in future projects. Appendix D of the Transportation Plan has the rating of each proposed walkway project, based on a set of different criteria.
