There are currently three documented plans that are guiding the bicycle and pedestrian network development: The Evansville Bicycle and Pedestrian Connectivity Master Plan, the Vanderburgh County Burkhardt Road + US 41 TIF Districts Bicycle + Pedestrian System Plan, and the Greater Henderson Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan.
The BPCMP was completed in 2015 and outlines nearly 170 miles of bicycle and pedestrian improvements in the City of Evansville. Plan development began with an extensive public outreach effort, leading the way for the network improvements. Recommended phasing, estimated project costs, policy-level recommendations, a set of Top 10 Priority Projects, and early action steps were also developed.
The TIF Districts Bike Plan was completed in 2012 at the request of the Vanderburgh County Commissioners. The Plan focuses on bicycle, pedestrian, and intersection improvements within the Burkhardt Road TIF District and the US 41 TIF District. Over 30 miles of network improvements are recommend in this Plan for the two TIF Districts.View Plan
The GHBPMP was adopted in March 2014 by the Henderson City-County Planning Commission. The Plan recommends over 135 miles of bicycle and pedestrian facilities within Henderson and Henderson County with a three-phase implementation schedule.View Plan
