Fargo-Moorhead Metro Bikeways Gap Analysis

About the Project


Upon completion of the 2016 Fargo-Moorhead Metro Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan, 119 potential projects were identified to improve connectivity for bicyclists within the area.  Of the gaps identified in the 2016 Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan, the jurisdictions of West Fargo, Fargo, Moorhead, and Clay County identified a total of 16 gaps to be thoroughly analyzed as part of this study.  The identification of the gaps to be analyzed has been based on results of the 2016 Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan, local needs, public feedback, and a general understanding that implementation is most likely feasible to eliminate the gap in some way.


The objectives of this study are to:

  • Develop planning-level alternatives for closing the gaps, information about impact to adjacent properties, the extent to which standards can be met, comparison of alternatives, and planning level cost estimates.
  • Prioritize projects, based on information provided by the alternatives analysis and public input, and
  • Prepare a report and graphics that provide information and recommendations for resolution of gaps in the bikeway network. 


The study began in January of 2019 and is anticipated to be completed in December of 2019.


Once available public input opportunities will be displayed on this website, via Metro COG’s Facebook page, and other means.
