CDOT releases Complete Streets Design Guidelines
The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) has released Complete Streets Chicago: Design Guidelines. The guidelines represent an important step in CDOT's efforts to implement the City's 2006 Complete Streets Policy. The new guidelines are intended to ensure that all CDOT engineers, planners, and managers – as well as staff and officials in other departments – are all working to implement Complete Streets.
Along with existing bicycle, pedestrian plans, the new guidelines will be further supported and advanced by Sustainable Urban Infrastructure Guidelines and Policies, which is currently under development and will provide guidance on creating streets that are intended to be more efficient, more economical, and help to mitigate the effects of climate change.
