Summary:
The report discusses the costs and benefits of facilities for improving pedestrian circulation, safety, and environment. The report categorizes the various types of facilities and improvements for pedestrians in downtown areas and at grade separation projects. A general framework for estimating total facility cost over time is developed and examples of costs are provided. The nature of pedestrian travel is examined  Read more...

Abstract:

The report discusses the costs and benefits of facilities for improving pedestrian circulation, safety, and environment. The report categorizes the various types of facilities and improvements for pedestrians in downtown areas and at grade separation projects. A general framework for estimating total facility cost over time is developed and examples of costs are provided. The nature of pedestrian travel is examined as an aid to determining the requirements for and impacts of pedestrians, vehicles, and abutting properties. Finally, examples of cost and benefit analysis of highway crossings are provided along with case studies of grade separated facilities in central business districts.
