— Raleigh is on track to become more walker-friendly outside the confines of its parks.

The City Council on Wednesday approved a comprehensive pedestrian plan that looked at Raleigh's transportation system and found several priorities for the capital city.

Among those priorities is installing sidewalks in areas where they are missing, maintain existing sidewalks and to make it easier and safer for pedestrians to cross streets.

In addition, the plan calls for educating drivers and pedestrians on their responsibilities and ordinances when it comes to sharing the roadways.
