American Society of Civil Engineers Supports Complete Streets

The American Society of Civil Engineers has added its voice to the Complete Streets discussion. In a policy adopted July 30, the ASCE states, "The ASCE supports Complete Streets policies that require that the safety, interests, and convenience of all users – drivers, bicyclists, transit users and pedestrians of all ages and abilities – be considered in the design, construction, operations, and management of transportation projects." You can read the policy here.
