What is a Complete Street?

A Complete Street is designed with every user in mind, whether a pedestrian, bicyclist, motorist, or user of public transportation, of any age. A Complete Street ensures the entire right-of-way enables safe access for all users. No two Complete Streets will look the same. The inclusion and placement elements such as crosswalks, bike lanes, bus lanes, sidewalks, medians, or curb extensions depends upon the surrounding land use and users' needs. Smart Growth America has an extensive library of materials relating to the implementation of Complete Streets.

Complete Streets in the Ozarks

The OTO Design Standards included in Transportation Plan 2040, recommend pedestrian and bicycle accommodations on a number of roadway classifications. Guidelines for those accommodations are included in the Design Standards. The Missouri Bicycle and Pedestrian Federation tracks Missouri communities and regional/metropolitan planning agencies who have adopted Complete Streets policies. This is a great resource for local jurisdictions looking for a sample policy that reflects a unique set of needs.
