Implementing Complete Streets

Complete Streets Policies, mandated by AB1358 are being written into more general plans and transportation plans every year, but how do local agencies move from policies to implementation, and what are the road blocks to implementation? This full day session will cover design standards and infrastructure projects that are addressing this need in localities throughout Southern California. Presenters will include public sector managers, as well as transportation consultants and engineers working in both urban and suburban settings.
