MDOT’s Complete Streets policy encompasses mobility and safety for pedestrians, bicyclists, public transportation users, older individuals, children, individuals with disabilities, motorists, and freight vehicles. The Complete Street policy works to ensure corridors are consistently designed, operated, and maintained to meet community needs and maximize safety.
Michigan Public Act 135 of 2010 defines “complete streets” as roadways planned, designed, and built to provide appropriate access to all legal users in a manner that promotes safe and efficient movement of people and goods whether by car, truck, transit, assistive device, foot, or bicycle.
