Presentation - CDOT Complete Streets program
Hear Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) Commissioner, Bobby Ware, explain the goals of CDOT’s Complete Streets program. Commissioner Ware spoke on the topic at the Metropolitan Planning Council’s roundtable "Alternative Avenues: How Livable Communities Promote Health and Wellness” on November 3, 2010. The event was sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois. CDOT's Complete Streets program goal is to accommodate and balance the safety and convenience of all users of the transportation system, including pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users, freight, and motor vehicle drivers, in all types of transportation and development projects and through all phases of a project so that even the most vulnerable – children, elderly, and persons with disabilities – can operate safely within the public right of way.
