Complete Streets

In January of 2022, the U.S. Department of Transportation released the National Roadway Safety Strategy. This document provides a comprehensive approach to  reducing fatal and serious injuries significantly on the Nation’s highways, roads, and streets. Formally adopting the Safe System Approach, this strategy considers five complimentary objectives: 1) Safer People, 2) Safer Roads, 3) Safer Vehicles, 4) Safer Speeds, 5.) Post-Crash Care.

Federal grant opportunities available in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will incorporate Complete Streets criteria in their eligibility and scoring process. Additionally, states and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) will be required to use planning funds to develop Complete Streets policies and prioritization plans.

In coordination with the Nebraska Department of Transportation, MAPA is hosting Federal Highway Administration training to help local jurisdictions and planning organizations to understand and apply policies that prioritize the safety of all users in transportation network planning. The training topics below are open to all individuals involved in assisting Nebraska communities and Iowa communities within the MAPA region with transportation safety-related project planning, design, and implementation. Please be sure to register below prior to the event.
