Cities of all sizes are working to fix various barriers towards being more walkable. Some, such as Portland, Oregon, have installed Urban Growth Barriers, which prevent the city from expanding past a certain point. This forces construction of mixed-use development within the ring. Other places, like Xenia, Ohio, have converted old railroad tracks and the like into pedestrian paths linking the community together. And still other places, like Chatanooga, Tennessee, have gone out of their way to remove barriers to pedestrian walking (in Chatanooga’s case, by constructing a bridge over the Tenessee River).
