About

BikeWalk BG is a movement seeking to encourage biking and walking for all of Bowling Green. We want to empower you to get out and move – to feel safe and enjoy your adventure whether you’re walking, running, or biking – by yourself, with friends, or with your kids. We’re working to take a more comprehensive and collective approach to not only encouraging biking and walking, but also to the planning efforts that help to create a safer, efficient, and more connected multimodal transportation system.

 

BikeWalk BG is powered by you, but is carried out by multiple agencies in many different facets. Building a connected sidewalk network, constructing Greenways facilities, and installing bike lanes takes a lot more thought and effort than you might think. It takes time, resources, and communication to plan priorities, then pursue them. The Bowling Green-Warren County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) oversees planning efforts for biking and walking facilities, while working with both the City of Bowling Green and Warren County Public Works and Parks & Recreation Departments, along with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 3 to carry out the design, right-of-way acquisition, utility relocation, and construction phases of the projects. If you want to learn more or participate in these efforts, join us at our next meeting.

We're Updating our Master Plan!

We’re in the process of updating our Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. This Plan will include priority projects and recommendations for infrastructure and non-infrastructure bicycle and pedestrian improvements. As we look to develop priorities for the future of our active transportation network (greenways, bike lanes, trails), we need your input!  Please take a few moments to fill out our public input survey at this link.

 

Check out our interactive BikeWalkBG map – you can toggle through different layers and view some of our proposed trails for this Plan.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Plans

A Greenspace is an open space such as a park, wildlife refuge, or undeveloped floodplain. A Greenway is a linear greenspace along a natural or man-made corridor. Natural corridors in Warren County include river frontage, stream valleys, or ridgelines. Man-made corridors include abandoned railroad lines, utility rights-of-way, or scenic highways. A Greenbelt is a network of greenspaces and greenways that can encircle as well as infiltrate a community.
