Sustainability - Complete Streets
Complete streets are designed to enable safe and easy travel for all modes of transportation, including vehicular, pedestrian, bicycle, and public.
Here are some reasons why implementing complete streets is a sustainable choice:
- Safe pedestrian walkways and bike lanes encourage people to use these options, resulting in less pollution and a healthier community
- Designing streets that allow people to travel safely by alternate means extends the life of pavement, reducing the cost of maintenance and the materials needed for repairs
- Creating accessible streets for people with disabilities helps to increase their quality of life and ability to operate independently
- Well-integrated non-vehicular traffic prevents congestion for drivers, improving travel time and reducing potential for accidents
