Complete Streets Design Guidelines
“Complete Streets” is a national movement that includes the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), state departments of transportation (DOTs), metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), cities, counties, nonprofits and others. Complete streets offers a valuable approach to providing alternatives to traffic congestion, making places safer and more livable, reducing environmental impacts, and a host of other benefits. It aims to improve the quality of life in cities by creating streets that are both great public spaces and sustainable transportation networks. It also complements the design process known as Context Sensitive Solutions by ensuring that streets are sensitive to the needs of all users in the context of the facility that is being designed.
