Sidewalks, Bikeways and Trails

Air Force Corporate Standards

Encourage walkability and cycling with properly sized and paved sidewalks, paths and trails following Installation Facilities Standards (IFS) for materials, lighting and safety. Create walkable places that are comfortable, convenient, healthy and sustainable; cost effectively redevelop areas, which were originally built around the automobile, to pedestrian oriented areas when functionally appropriate and economically feasible.

Provide an appropriate level of quality for the Facility Group.


Sustainability

Appropriately address heat island effect in the selection of materials following UFC 1-200-02 to improve thermal comfort. Generally use materials with high solar reflectance that maintain lower surface temperature. Minimize environmental impacts.
