Should the bill pass, states would have two years to pass a law or put in place a DOT policy to require that “all transportation projects in the State shall accommodate the safety and convenience of all users in accordance with complete streets principles.” The bill defines these principles as “the safe and adequate accommodation…of all users of the transportation system, including pedestrians, bicyclists, public transit users, children, older individuals, individuals with disabilities, motorists, and freight vehicles” and “the consideration of the safety and convenience of all users in all phases of project planning and development.”
