The Villages of Minoa, Fayetteville, and Manlius Bicycle & Pedestrian Connections Study is an evaluation aimed at improving the bicycle and pedestrian network, connections, and access through the area that links the three villages to each other, as well as to neighboring parks and trails in the area – including the Empire State Trail system, Mill Run Park, and Green Lakes State Park. Working alongside the Villages of Fayetteville, Manlius, and Minoa, the Town of Manlius, and with SMTC member agencies, SMTC staff and the project’s consultant team are exploring ideas to:

  • Provide detailed, site-specific recommendations for bicycle and pedestrian facilities along the most appropriate roadways for such facilities; and
  • Strengthen and increase the safety of bicycle connections from local parks and trails to the village of Fayetteville, Manlius, and Minoa, as well as increase the number of bicycle commuter trips through the villages.

On this page you will find information about upcoming public engagement opportunities, related materials, and updates on the progress of the study.

As part of this bicycle and pedestrian connections study, a short survey was created to better understand the attitudes and behaviors of community members, as they relate to walking and biking. THE SURVEY IS NOW CLOSED. The online survey was launched in January 2024, and ran through February 12, 2024.

Explore some of the data we're examining. Mapping will be updated throughout the study process so please check back often.

The proposed improvements were presented at the April 2024 public open house and are not final.  Existing conditions data received from state and local partners.
