'Complete Streets' Helps All Travelers

Complete Streets

Road safety involves more than repairing potholes. It’s about designing safe, accessible streets to accommodate all kinds of travelers—pedestrians, cyclists, transit users and people with disabilities, as well as motorists.

AARP Louisiana is being recognized for its Complete Streets work in East Baton Rouge Parish. The Baton Rouge Sustainable Transportation Action Committee, a joint initiative between AARP Louisiana and the nonprofit Center for Planning Excellence, is promoting its pilot program as a model for other communities.

The Complete Streets movement calls for features such as sidewalks, crosswalks, bike lanes and transit stops that accommodate all kinds of passengers. Such features promote public safety, employment opportunities and property values.
