"To make sure that Fort Wayne has an active transportation infrastructure network that safely connects people to destinations, City staff – with input from the public and the Walk Fort Wayne Advisory Team – prepared the Walk Fort Wayne Plan. This Plan takes a comprehensive approach to ensuring and encouraging safe pedestrian connectivity along our City's thoroughfares" – Mayor Tom Henry.

Priority projects have begun being implemented since the Walk Fort Wayne Plan was approved by the Common Council of the City of Fort Wayne in 2011. Fort Wayne residents will be able to see new pedestrian improvements along the city's major roadways. These new pedestrian facilities, which include sidewalks, crosswalks and shared-use paths, will greatly increase connectivity and accessibility within the City of Fort Wayne.
