Guide for the Planning, Design and Operation of Pedestrian Facilities

The American Association of State and Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO)

The guide focuses on identifying effective measures for accommodating pedestrians on public rights-of-way. Appropriate methods for accommodating pedestrians, which vary among roadway and facility types, are described in this guide. The primary audiences for this manual are planners, roadway designers, and transportation engineers, whether at the state or local level, the majority of whom make decisions on a daily basis that affect pedestrians. This guide also recognizes the profound effect that land use planning and site design have on pedestrian mobility and addresses these topics as well.

The guide can be purchased through the AASHTO web site.
