Washington state promotes Complete Streets

A Federal Complete Streets bill is asking a lot but can you imagine, Washington State has actually passed one. This is a little different. Instead of requiring transportation projects to consider complete streets it offers grants to help fund those projects that do consider complete streets impleentation.–Corrie

A bill that encourages cities to embrace “Complete Streets” policies is slated to be signed into law on Thursday by Washington state Gov. Christine Gregoire.

House Bill 1071 calls on the Department of Transportation to issue grants to local jurisdictions that use design standards on arterial street retrofits that provide safe access to bicyclists and pedestrians.
