Complete Streets Policy

In 2009, The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development convened a Complete Streets Work Group in fulfillment of the request of the state legislature. This process resulted in the adoption of a Complete Streets Policy for DOTD and the development of a final report, including recommendations for future actions.

DOTD’s Complete Streets Policy was awarded the “Innovations for Sustaining Places Award: Best Practices” by the American Planning Association Louisiana Chapter in 2011. The National Complete Streets Coalition’s 2011 Complete Streets Policy Analysis Report recognized Louisiana’s Complete Streets Policy as one of the best in the nation for its comprehensiveness and strength.
