In this study of 37 projects, Smart Growth America found that Complete Streets projects
tended to improve safety for everyone, increased biking and walking, and showed a mix of
increases and decreases in automobile traffic, depending in part on the project goal. Compared
to conventional transportation projects, these projects were remarkably affordable, and
were an inexpensive way to achieve transportation goals http://www.smartgrowthamerica.org/documents/safer-streets-stronger-economies.pdf
@Marko – thanks for posting this. I’ve been imagining that strategies like these might be appropriate/necessary for Freeport Road in Aspinwall, so seeing all of these examples, as well as the positive safety and economic impacts will really help me make my case.
