In 2012, Trans4M members encouraged the Michigan State Transportation Commission to adopt the strong Complete Streets policy, which is now in place and guides how the Michigan Department of Transportation creates roadways for all travelers including motorists, cyclists, bus riders, and those with disabilities.
This year Trans4M members will support statewide investment in non-motorized transportation and will help local governments implement Complete Streets policies in their own communities.
Over, 80 communities across Michigan have adopted a Complete Streets policy, making Michigan the state with the most policies to date.
To see if your community has adopted a complete streets policy or to learn more about the implementation of local Complete Street policies in your community, visit the Michigan Complete Streets Coalition.
For more information regarding Trans4M’s involvement with Complete Streets and other non-motorized transportation issues, contact Sarah Panken, spanken[at]michiganfitness[dot]org, at the Michigan Fitness Foundation (Trans4M Member).
