City of Red Wing Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan


In response to a goal set forth in Red Wing's Comprehensive Plan (2007) and the recent Complete Streets Policy Resolution (2010), the City of Red Wing has begun the planning process for a Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan in the summer of 2011. The Red Wing City Council adopted the Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan at their meeting held on November 28, 2011. This Plan is a tool to guide the long-term programs, policies and physical projects that will support walking and bicycling in Red Wing. The intent of this plan is to transform Red Wing into a community where choosing to walk or bicycle is a safe, convenient and enjoyable recreation and transportation option for all users.
