Columbus is on the road to becoming a Complete Streets city! 

Complete Streets

Complete Streets are streets that work for everyone in the community, regardless of how they get around. This does not mean every street should have bike lanes or transit-only lanes, but rather that the street accounts for all users and balances their needs in a safe, comfortable and integrated environment that is appropriate to the surrounding development context.

 

While Columbus has made significant strides toward complete streets, in keeping with the Complete Streets Policy adopted by City Council in 2008, many streets have historically been designed and built to prioritize moving and storing cars. As these streets are rebuilt or modified over time, there will be new opportunities to assess the balance between users and safely accommodate all users, including pedestrians, cyclists and micro-mobility users, drivers, transit riders and residents - without a one-size-fits-all solution.

 

In 2018, the City of Columbus became an official member of NACTO, the National Association of City Transportation Officials, and signifying commitment to implement best practices in street design, such as those recommended by the NACTO Urban Street Design Guide. While complete street design principles will remain constant, every context is different and designs should reflect the unique needs of each location.
