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.
Vancouver Land Bridge
The Vancouver Land Bridge is a 40-foot-wide, 3,800-foot long paved trail that arcs across State Route 14. This bridge provides a vital pathway to pedestrians between the Renaissance Waterfront Trail along the shores of the Columbia River in downtown Vancouver and Fort Vancouver. The project was completed in 2008 by a partnership of the National Park Service, the City of Vancouver, the Washington State Department of Commerce, and the Washington State Department of Transportation.
