This HIA provided information to Washington County's leaders and planners as they updated the county's active transportation policies, and made decisions about the design of bicycle and pedestrian facilities in upcoming transportation projects. The goals of the HIA were to understand barriers to biking and walking in Washington County, and research the connections between health, built environment design and transportation policies. Based on the findings from the assessment, the workgroup and steering committee identified 2 primary recommendations. They were 1) pedestrian and bicycle facility design and 2) education.
