Complete Streets

What are Complete Streets? Complete Streets are streets for everyone. They are designed and operated to enable safe access and comfortable accommodation for all users of all ages and abilities; including pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and motorists of all types. As an added benefit, Complete Streets support economic development and enhance the visual experience for users. In addition to accommodating motorists on the roadway, Complete Streets focuses on the needs of travelers outside that group, including younger or older people, those with disabilities, and those who travel by transit, bicycle, or on foot, and who have oftentimes been overlooked in the transportation planning process. Complete Streets is about safety and efficiency as well. Complete Streets provides a better quality of life, often through measurable environmental benefits, and can spur economic development.
