The Walkable Washington program grew out of the Feet First Cities Program. It showcases exceptional pedestrian-oriented improvements, community groups and outreach programs; maintains a statewide network for key contacts and stakeholders including an annual symposium; and provides assistance with Safe Routes to School, walking audits and other educational activities and programs.
The first Walkable Washington Symposium will be held on Thursday, April 3, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm; in preparation for that event we will be highlighting projects around Washington which have enhanced walkability.
Tacoma 13 Corridor
The Tacoma 13 Corridor project is a thirteen mile pedestrian and bike thoroughfare that will connect a diverse range of neighborhoods in Tacoma and encourage residents to pursue car-free transportation options. This plan began as a bikeways project and has developed to include pedestrian mobility in line with Tacoma’s growing dedication to pedestrian improvements in the city.
