Fayetteville Mobility Plan
About the Plan
Fayetteville envisions a transportation system that is equitable and safe for all users, provides desirable access opportunities for all transportation modes, and promotes and supports the continued economic growth and prosperity of the city and its citizens.
The City of Fayetteville is invested in improving how residents, employees, visitors and others travel to, from, and around the City--whether you drive and park, bicycle, walk, or use public transit.
Streets make up 50 percent of the public space in Fayetteville. Streets foster business activity, serve as a front yard for residents, and provide a safe place for people to get around town. For years, Fayetteville's transportation network has been designed primarily--and some streets, exclusively--for the ease and convenience of transportation by car. Even more telling, 40 percent of all pedestrian fatalities in Arkansas in 2013 occurred on arterial streets--an alarming proportion given the lack of pedestrian sidewalks and other facilities on main roadways. In addition, projections indicate that Fayetteville's population is expected to grow by almost 40 percent over the next 20 years.
The Fayetteville Mobility Plan, with guidance from the City Plan 2030, evaluates the existing conditions of the transportation network in Fayetteville and provides a means to identify opportunities for street and sidewalk improvements that will enhance the livability of our city for our current growing population and for future generations.
