More About Complete Streets & Rumble Reviews

 The Alliance for Biking and Walking notes key changes to TDOT's Complete Street's Policy
  • It requires not only Tennessee DOT to follow the policy, but contractors, consultants and local governments managing TDOT projects.
  • It requires local, regional and state organizations implementing projects with state money to follow the policy.
  • It requires the state to consider local bike/ped plans when resurfacing state roadways within their jurisdiction.
  • It points to and requires design in accordance with national FHWA and AASHTO standards for bike/ped facility design.
  • It specifies that road resurfacing shall not degrade current walking and biking levels.
