AUTHORS: Isabel C. Kaubisch, Principal Clarendon Hill Consulting LLC

This year MassDOT issued the Complete Streets program, setting aside funds for towns able to demonstrate their eligibility for respective projects.  Planning for Complete Streets (CS) aims at making communities more walkable and more accommodating for bike travel and enhanced transit services and as such more livable whilst providing for safe and accessible multi-modal travel.

This poster shows the CS planning approach, conducted GIS analysis, prioritization criteria and results for one of the towns participating in the program. Together with Green International, we assisted towns with developing the necessary steps for their Complete Streets Prioritization Plans. Starting with the assessment of the current transportation situation and based on research and crash information, a needs assessment was conducted. Then, we ran a gap and vulnerability analysis’ for specific locations. Based on the analysis results, areas for improvement were identified and CS project ideas developed. Using our prioritization strategy allowed towns to identify opportunities and CS projects most relevant for their community. Those CS projects deemed to make streets safer, more accessible and more complete are now potentially eligible for funding from MassDOT.
