Complete Streets Implementation

Providing safe mobility for all users, including motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians and transit riders, contributes to the Department's mission/vision: "Improving Mobility Across California".

Successful long-term implementation of this policy is intended to result in:
  • More options for people to go from one place to another
  • Less traffic congestion and greenhouse gas emissions
  • More walkable communities (with healthier, more active people)
  • Fewer barriers for older adults, children, and people with disabilities.
Economically, complete streets can help revitalize communities, and they can give families the option to lower transportation costs by using transit, walking or bicycling rather than driving to reach their destinations. The Department is actively engaged in implementing its complete streets policy in all planning, programming, design, construction, operations, and maintenance activities and products on the State Highway System.
