FHWA Report to Congress
Source: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)

A report to Congress from FHWA details efforts to advance Complete Streets as its approach for funding and designing the majority of Federally funded roads to improve safety and accessibility for all road users. The report identifies five opportunities and ongoing challenges:

  • Improve data collection and analysis
  • Support rigorous safety assessment
  • Accelerate adoption of standards and guidance
  • Reinforce the primacy of safety for all users
  • Make Complete Streets FHWA's default approach

A Complete Streets website and a Complete Streets Transformations resource that shares six scenarios to transform arterials using Complete Streets are also available.
