Pedestrian & bicycle facilities

FHWA and WSDOT require that bicyclist and pedestrian facilities be included in new construction and reconstruction projects in all population centers where walking and biking are permitted. Find information on how to design pedestrian and bicycle facilities. Federal law requires that facilities be constructed to meet ADA accessibility standards.

Traction tires are a special type of tire

manufactured with at least 1/8 of an inch tread. Traction tires are usually marked with a mountain/snowflake symbol, the letters M+S or “All Season.”

Carry chains, practice before leaving

Requiring chains keeps traffic moving during storms rather than closing a pass or roadway.

Prep your car. Fill up your gas tank,

pack jumper cables, ice scraper, warm clothing, snacks and water.
