Complete Streets

Complete Streets are roadways designed to safely and comfortably accommodate all users, including, but not limited to motorists, cyclists, pedestrians, transit and school bus riders, delivery and service personnel, freight haulers, and emergency responders. "All users" includes people of all ages and abilities.

We work with communities on writing and adopting local Complete Streets policies, and we review infrastructure improvement plans submitted to us for funding consideration to make sure Complete Streets elements are included where appropriate.


Complete Streets Toolkit

The Complete Streets Toolkit is a resource for planning, designing, constructing, and maintaining Complete Streets. You will find guidance and best practices related to engineering, education, encouragement, enforcement, evaluation, land use, and parking management, among other topics. Additionally, the document contains model policies that can serve as a template for creating a Complete Streets policy in your community. There is also a two-page fact sheet on our policy.

Complete Streets Policies

We adopted a regional Complete Streets policy in 2010. See the MORPC Complete Streets Policy for more information.

Several Central Ohio communities have adopted their own Complete Streets policies, resolutions, or ordinances.
