What are complete streets?

Complete Streets are streets for everyone.

Complete Streets is an approach that integrates people and place in the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of our transportation networks.

This helps to ensure streets are safe for people of all ages and abilities, including the most vulnerable users, that they balance the needs of different modes, and support local land uses, economies, cultures, and natural environments.

Complete Streets are intended to benefit all users equitably, particularly vulnerable users and the most underinvested and underserved communities. Complete Streets are built on the premise that transportation choices should be safe, convenient, reliable, affordable, accessible, and timely regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, income, gender identity, immigration status, age, ability, languages spoken, or level of access to a personal vehicle.
