Complete Streets [INFOGRAPH]

The city of Indianapolis adopted Indiana’s sixth Complete Streets policy on August 23. In honor of the success, the ICC has released our latest infograph that models a Complete Street, details the health and economic benefit of active transportation, and illustrates how much of Indiana is now covered by a Complete Streets policy.

Complete Streets legislation ensures that transportation planners and engineers consistently design and operate the entire roadway with all users in mind including pedestrians, motorists, cyclists, mass transit riders, and those with disabilities. When “streets are complete,” alternative modes of transportation (walking, biking, etc.) are more attractive; physical activity is promoted; safety is improved for all users, and in the case of safe routes to school, safety is improved for children; and the unintended negative health outcomes of a less active lifestyle are minimized.
