Complete Streets Funding Announced

November 09, 2015

Complete Streets are designed for everybody, and encourage walking, cycling and transit to coexist with cars and trucks. With a push from members of our coalition and from leaders in dozens of cities and towns, the state legislature in 2014 authorized a strong Complete Streets initiative.  After further discussion and review with many communities, MassDOT has announced a funding program to make this important concept a reality, supported by $12.5 million in the next two years.

The Massachusetts Public Health Association and Metropolitan Area Planning Council have been strong leaders on this effort.
