Governor Cuomo to Sign “Complete Streets” Legislation

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced he will sign a law to require state and local transportation agencies to consider “complete streets” designs that will make streets and roadways across the state safe and accessible to all New Yorkers.

Under the new law, “Complete Streets” design principles will be considered on New York State Department of Transportation projects and local and county projects which receive both federal and state funding and are subject to state DOT oversight. “Complete Streets” principles facilitate improved joint use of roadways by all users, including pedestrians, motorists, and bicyclists as well as promote a cleaner, greener transportation system with reduced traffic congestion and the resultant air pollution.
