As stated in the Comprehensive Plan, the City of Edgewood desires a transportation system that improves mobility and offers mobility choices for all City citizens. Edgewood is primarily a residential community with ready-access to employment and shopping within and outside the City limits. Edgewood’s existing street system was originally developed to serve the basic needs of a rural agricultural community. While most of the roads of Edgewood currently have adequate vehicle capacity, much of the current system lacks urban pedestrian and bicycle facilities and is not constructed to current roadway standards. The future multimodal transportation system will feature a balance of rural and urban transportation facilities to meet the needs of a growing community.
As Edgewood continues to grow, it is our mission to develop the transportation system consistent with the goals and objectives contained in the Comprehensive Plan. The left-hand menu on this page contains more detailed information about our ongoing transportation planning efforts and project development.
