Bridgewater's Active Transportation Plan

Bridgewater created its first AT Plan in 2008. The plan has helped guide policy, programming and infrastructure changes.

In 2020, the plan was renewed to reflect current practices and to support the Town’s goals. The vision of the plan is that walking, wheeling and cycling are safe, convenient and enjoyable ways to move around Bridgewater for users of all ages and abilities and are a common part of everyday life.
