It’s official: the Mayor has signed the Complete Streets ordinance!
What does this mean? The most noticeable impacts will be seen on roads in poor condition which are already scheduled for repaving. Historically, when roads were repaved, they would be torn up and replaced with the exact same striping, lane widths, etc. Now, opportunities for wider bike lanes and narrower traffic lanes will be explored and in some cases implemented. This will generally occur in short segments because different segments of the same road are frequently in different states of repair.
