The Lawrence Pedestrian Coalition (PedCo) exists to realize completion of the pedestrian network in Lawrence, Kansas and ensure pedestrian access and safety throughout our community.
"Perils for Pedestrians", a television series examining issues affecting people who walk, came to Lawrence during the summer of 2017 and interviewed representatives of PedCo. You may watch the Lawrence segment of the program below, view the entire episode, or visit the Perils for Pedestrians website.
Everyone is a pedestrian at some time during the day whether they are on foot, in a stroller, have mobility disabilities, or are just walking to or from a motor vehicle. The Lawrence Pedestrian Coalition (PedCo) promotes a walk friendly community in Lawrence, Kansas.
Lawrence faces many challenges:
- The sidewalk network is incomplete.
- Mass transportation needs to be integrated with other modes of transportation.
- New development should have more pedestrian-friendly designs.
- The aging population needs transportation options.
The community, in general, needs to understand the advantages of walking and how to create an environment that encourages transportation choices. We support and encourage all efforts to address and overcome these challenges. Our meetings are open to the public. Please join us!
To Be Determined.
