U.S. DOT Embraces Complete Streets Policy!

March 19, 2010 at 12:22 pm Leave a comment

U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announces the department’s recommendations for a Complete Streets policy. LaHood has issued a new policy statement that calls for full inclusion of pedestrians and bicyclists in transportation projects, with particular attention paid to transit riders and people of all ages and abilities – essentially, a Complete Streets policy. In his blog, LaHood stated that “this is the end of favoring motorized transportation at the expense of non-motorized.” Now it is more critical than ever to achieve a federal Complete Streets law. Please continue to use the Advocacy Network to urge your legislators to support Complete Streets legislation.
