Complete Streets

Governor Cuomo signed legislation yesterday which will require any project overseen by the state Department of Transportation, or that gets funding from the state or federal government, to take into account certain design principles (Complete Streets).

Projects will need to address not only vehicles but pedestrians, bicycles and public transit riders. You will see more crosswalks and bike lanes. It will make traveling much safer for those who do not drive. It will also promote healthier and greener lifestyles.
