RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- State transportation officials have an eye on North Carolina's feet.

The state Department of Transportation is in the process of developing a new statewide pedestrian and bicycle plan and is seeking the public's help to craft a vision for the future of walking and biking in North Carolina.

The plan will be developed in collaboration with state agencies and regional, private and industry stakeholders. It will examine how to create a safer pedestrian and bicycle network that also benefits the state's economy, public health and environment.

A statement from NCDOT says when the plan is completed, it will be among the most comprehensive of its kind in the nation.
