Complete Streets Act of 2011

The Complete Streets Act of 2011 (number not yet assigned) would promote the design of streets that are safe for all who use them – including motorists, bus riders, pedestrians, bicyclists, and people with disabilities. The bill encourages federal, state, and regional agencies that receive federal transportation funding to fully consider incorporating pedestrian and bicycle safety measures when roads are built or modernized. Harkin has introduced similar legislation in 2009 and 2007.

The Complete Streets Act of 2011 is cosponsored by Benjamin Cardin (D-MD) and others.
