About the report:

The guidelines currently utilized to evaluate the need for pedestrian accommodations in suburban areas were reviewed and summarized.

A handbook was prepared to assist planners and engineers in deciding when and where a pedestrian facility should be installed or retrofitted and the kind of facility that would be most appropriate.
