Complete Streets

Complete Streets are roadways designed, implemented, operated, and maintained in an equitable and context-sensitive manner so that people of all ages, incomes, and abilities can use them safely. These streets consider the needs of all people, including, but not limited to, people: walking, bicycling, using shared mobility devices and assistive devices, using transit and riding school buses, driving, and operating commercial and emergency vehicles.

MORPC Complete Streets Policy

MORPC first adopted a Complete Streets Policy in 2010. All transportation projects receiving MORPC-attributable federal funding are required to comply with this Complete Streets Policy.

Revisions to the Policy have since been adopted in 2021 and 2024. Past versions of the Policy can be found in the drop-down menu at the bottom of this page under MORPC Resources.
