Glossary: Facility Types

Sidewalks: Sidewalks are at least 5-foot wide paved paths located along streets that are primarily used by people walking or running.

Trails: Trails are narrow (less than 5-feet wide) paths that are typically not paved and made of earth, mulch or stone dust. They are often located within natural or forested areas.

Shared-use paths: Shared-use paths are paved paths with a minimum width of 10-foot wide paths. They are ADA-accessible and are shared by people walking, running or riding bikes. They can offer routes not provided by the road network, provide additional recreational opportunities or serve as a direct commuter route.

Bike lanes can take multiple forms, including:

  • Protected bike lanes are located within or directly adjacent to the road and exclusively for bicyclists to use. They have both a horizontal separation (such as a painted buffer) and a vertical separation or barrier. They are typically used in higher speed, higher vehicular traffic areas.


  • Buffered bike lanes are horizontally separated paths, typically marked painted pavement markings. They are exclusively for bicyclists to use. They do not have a vertical separation or barrier between the bike lane and the vehicle lane.


  • Non-buffered bike lanes are a portion of the road designated for bicyclists with striping, signage and pavement markings. They are one-way lanes so that bicyclists travel in the same direction as motor vehicles. They are typically used on streets with slower speeds or less motor vehicle traffic.
