Pedestrian Prioritization Tool
Montgomery Planning asked for your help to identify how and where you would prioritize pedestrian infrastructure improvements through our Pedestrian Prioritization Tool. This feedback is helping inform equitable and data-driven decision-making on the Pedestrian Master Plan’s recommendations and its future implementation as we work to improve the pedestrian experience across the county.

Pedestrian Shortcut Map
The Pedestrian Shortcut Map is part of the county’s first Pedestrian Master Plan aimed at making walking and rolling safer, more comfortable, convenient and accessible for pedestrians of all ages and abilities in all parts of the county. It is also an effort to understand what informal pedestrian connections – apparent in trodden grass, dirt or gravel on public or private property – exist in Montgomery County.

Pedestrian Level of Comfort Map
Pedestrian Level of Comfort (PLOC) was developed by the Montgomery County Planning Department together with Toole Design Group to quantify how comfortable people feel when they walk in certain traffic conditions.

Pedestrian Audit Toolkit
Use our interactive Pedestrian Audit Toolkit to identify areas in your neighborhoods in need of improvement. The toolkit also identifies the appropriate agencies to contact with your concerns.
