The City of Fayetteville is invested in improving how residents, employees, visitors and others travel to, from and around Fayetteville - 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, whether by foot, bicycle, car, or public transit. For years, Fayetteville's transportation network has been designed primarily - and some streets, exclusively - to optimize vehicular throughput. 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 infrastructure on arterial roadways. In addition, projections indicate that Fayetteville's population is expected to grow by almost 40 percent in population over the next 20 years.
Beginning in spring 2016, the Fayetteville Mobility Plan, relying on guidance from the City Plan 2030, will leverage transportation network investments to locate expected growth for maximum economic and social returns. The project will evaluate the existing conditions of the transportation network in Fayetteville and provide technical assistance for identifying opportunities for network investments to enhance livability and support future generations.
