Houston County / Cities of Centerville, Perry & Warner Robins Bicycle & Pedestrian Planning
Having recently completed the Joint Comprehensive Plan for Houston County and the Cities of Centerville, Perry, and Warner Robins, it is apparent that each of these communities desire and support alternative forms of transportation, including new bicycle and pedestrian facilities. What follows are just a few examples from these communities’ implementation program that demonstrate the importance placed on the issue of bicycle/pedestrian accessibility.
Houston County: Enhance the pedestrian (sidewalk) system in Houston County and include such designs in the 2006 SPLOST improvement program; prepare and implement, in coordination with the Warner Robins Area Transportation Study, a bicycle and pedestrian plan for Houston County; review alternative forms of transportation with less dependency on the automobile.
City of Centerville: Extend Margie Drive to Bassett Street; Thomson Street road improvements; Wilson Drive road widening project; Church Street road widening project; widening of Gunn Road to Highway 41 (three lanes); improve local roads to manage traffic flow while maintaining pedestrian-friendly transportation alternatives.
Through funding assistance made available by the Georgia Department of Transportation in FY12, the City of Centerville was able to prepare a Pedestrian Facility/Sidewalk Infrastructure Improvement Plan. The plan provides local officials with a guide for current and future sidewalk maintenance and identifies opportunities for expansion.

City of Perry: Construct a citywide multi-use path system; create a sidewalk map for the city depicting existing sidewalks and ramps; new and reconstructed roadways will be designed to accommodate multiple functions, such as pedestrian facilities, parking, bike routes, and multi-use paths, as well as vehicular circulation; support creation of a community-wide multi-use path network.
City of Warner Robins: Conduct a bike and pedestrian program study for the Warner Robins Metropolitan Area; review alternative forms of transportation with less dependency on the automobile.
