Bicycle and Pedestrian Plans
The 2019 Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan provides guidance on the location and design on the bicycle and pedestrian networks within the BTPO planning areas.
Non-Motorized Transportation (NMT) Workgroup was formed in January 2018 with the goal of prioritizing non-motorized transportation projects and understanding the connection between the built environment and local health. The NMT workgroup included representation from Bannock Transportation Planning Organization, City of Pocatello, NeighborWorks Pocatello, Idaho Transportation Department, Southeastern Idaho Public Health, Idaho State University, and Portneuf Health Trust.
The purpose of this Master Plan is to outline the vision for the development of the Portneuf Greenway Trail System.
The purpose of this Maintenance Plan is to set a maintenance schedule for the Portneuf Greenway Trail System. The plan outlines responsibilities and recommends when and how to meet those responsibilities.
The purpose of these Design Guidelines is to establish a consistent pattern to the development of the Portneuf Greenway Trail System. The plan outlines design treatment and recommendations for various components including trail construction.
In 2004, Bannock Transportation Planning Organization and the Cities of Pocatello and Chubbuck contracted with Rocky Mountain Engineering & Surveying to conduct a school zone study in the Pocatello/Chubbuck area.
Yellowstone is the most important street in the urban area, with the exception of the interstate highways. Yellowstone is the backbone of the region’s transportation system, serving to connect neighborhoods, business districts, residents and their jobs, and Pocatello and Chubbuck.

Master Street Plan (PDF)
The Purpose of the Master Street Plan is to provide an engineering-based, legally defensible document which outlines the future collector and arterial placement and right-of-way requirements, and classifies the existing collectors and arterials by a street classification which can be used to develop a future acquisitions map.
Traffic Impact Study (PDF)
The functionality of the existing roadway systems are influenced by many factors including: current use; land use bordering the facility; type and amount of access to the facility; and traffic control used along the facility.
How long does it take to get there? This is a common question but an important one for transportation planning and the average driver. Read more…
This plan reviews twenty-four (24) intersections of roads classified as collectors and above with other roads classified as collectors and above.
With the passage of Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) in 2005, came an increased focus on improving public involvement. Public involvement in transportation planning and project development moved to a point where agencies were doing a good job of bringing the public and interested parties into the planning and projects development process, but some felt there was a lack of understanding of what planning was recommending and how projects would actually look. The purpose of this document is to provide a review on how BTPO currently conducts public involvement, document preparation, and website design and determine if visualization techniques can improve the understanding of the information being presented.
