New Design Criteria Set to Transform Transportation Networks and Benefit City Planners and Landscape Architects
The Connecticut Department of Transportation (Connecticut DOT) has initiated a transformative change in its approach to transportation infrastructure by implementing new "Complete Streets" design criteria. This strategy will be integrated into all surface roadway projects moving forward.
A "Complete Street" is meticulously planned and designed to accommodate the safe and convenient access and mobility of all roadway users, regardless of age or ability. This approach encompasses pedestrians, bicyclists, public transportation users, and motorists, extending its benefits to children, the elderly, and individuals with disabilities.
