IDOT Complete Streets policy implementation finalized
The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) issued a Bureau of Design and Environment (BDE) Procedure Memorandum (Number 68-10) on “Bicycle and Pedestrian Accommodation (Complete Streets).” The memorandum modifies Chapters 5 and 17 (‘Local Agency Agreements’ and ‘Bicycle and Pedestrian Accommodations,’ respectively) of the Bureau of Design and Environment Manual. The changes represent IDOT’s implementation of the Illinois Complete Streets Law. The revisions will be incorporated into the next update of the BDE Manual.
