• About Complete Streets

    The N.C. Department of Transportation adopted a "Complete Streets" policy in July 2009. The policy directs the Department to consider and incorporate several modes of transportation when building new projects or making improvements to existing infrastructure. The benefits of this new approach include:
    • Making it easier for travelers to get where they need to go;
    • Encouraging the use of alternative forms of transportation;
    • Building more sustainable communities;
    • Increasing connectivity between neighborhoods, streets, and transit systems;
    • Improving safety for pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists.
  • Complete Streets Training

    In 2013, the North Carolina Department of Transportation is offering 24 in-depth training courses to be held across North Carolina to provide detailed information about its Complete Streets Policy, Design Guidelines, and steps to implementation.

    Who Should Attend?

    The training courses are open to those whose work involves planning and designing North Carolina streets and professionals who use the Design Guidelines on a regular basis, including local and regional agencies and consultants. Participants can gain AICP credits and engineering professional development hours.​
