Objective 4: Plan, design, and build complete streets to move more people and goods

Previous

Complete streets accommodate multi-modal travel with walkways, bicycle lanes, and transit facilities. Complete streets encourage walking by providing appealing spaces to walk, connections to destinations, and comfortable walking conditions. Improvements such as curb ramps, landscape buffers, and natural drainage assist in making a friendly walking environment. Additional strategies, such as attractive streetscapes that include lush vegetation and human-scaled elements, encourage walking and other forms of travel.

Strategy 4.1: Allocate and design Seattle’s rights-of-way to support Complete Streets principles
