Complete Streets is a nationally recognized term referring to roadways designed and operated to enable safe access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities. In addition to safety, Complete Streets designs will promote quality of life, enhance property values, encourage physical activity and reduce negative environmental impacts.
The Palm Beach TPA aims to achieve a safe, efficient and connected transportation system by implementing Complete Streets within our county’s diverse communities.
