Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Supporting active living through walking and bicycling provides communities with the opportunity to be physically active and improve health. At the same time, safety concerns can create barriers to community members walking and bicycling. Many local Kansas communities are exploring ways to increase walking and bicycling through policies supporting the development of local sidewalks, expanding rails to trails efforts, and working with railroads to identify safety concerns impacting walking and bicycling, particularly around rail crossings.

This webinar discusses the responsibilities of property owners, local governments, and railroad companies in developing and maintaining safe and accessible sidewalks, recreational trails, and railroad crossings. Working together to provide safe and accessible sidewalks, recreational trails and railroad crossings encourages walking and bicycling and promotes health within Kansas communities.
