Complete Streets references

A FABB member recently attended a webinar on Complete Streets in the South sponsored by the Safe Routes to School National Partnership.

One of the cities featured is Memphis, Tennessee, which in 2008 and 2010 made the list of Bicycling's Worst Cities. Since then the Mayor has committed to adding 55 miles of new bike lanes and hired the city's first bike coordinator. Bicycling recently featured Memphis in the brief article America's Most Improved Bike City. The city now has a Complete Streets Manual that is helping transform the city into a more bike- and ped-friendly place.

Another great Complete Streets resource is Rethinking Streets: An Evidence-Based Guide to 25 Complete Streets Transformations. It contains some excellent ideas for remaking our streets into safer, more bike-friendly places. Several of the transformations consist of road diets similar to those in Reston on Lawyers Road and Soapstone Drive that are featured in a new Federal publication, the Road Diet Informational Guide.

MWCOG conducted a survey of local jurisdictions to determine which had Complete Streets, Survey Finds Number of Local "Complete Streets" Policies in the Region Growing. According to the survey, Fairfax County said they have a Complete Streets policy, the Transportation Policy Plan.
