Benefits of Complete Streets

Streets built to share mean more safety and less stress, more control and less confusion.

Streets built to safe and accessible with protected bike lanes and traffic calming help reduce dangerous and illegal speeding, making our neighborhoods safer and more livable for everyone.

Good street infrastructure doesn’t leave people driving, biking, or walking to navigate incomplete connections that force everyone into unsafe and confusing situations. Everyone can get where they are going with the greatest safety and the least amount of hassle because the traffic flow needs of all are met through careful planning and smart construction.

Improved bike infrastructure in tandem with increasing public transit and walking accessibility ensures everyone has access to safe modes of transportation in the greater New Orleans area.

Creating transportation options, including bicycling and transit improvements, is good for New Orleans’ businesses and workers. 

Increasing safe and accessible transportation options can help our region make progress on the big issues we’re facing – public health, equity, job access & economic development, and quality-of-life!

We can all have peace on the road – and more livable communities – when we all have a piece of the road.
