Caltrans ‘Complete Streets’ Program About More Than Cars

Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty says the “Complete Streets” plan considers more than the automobile when it comes to highway improvements. “There’s the pedestrian, there’s the bicyclist, there’s the mass transit user, and we want to make sure our projects accommodate all those modes,” said Dougherty during an interview with Capital Public Radio.  Dougherty said many state highways serve as local streets or main streets for some communities. He said every “complete street,” is different depending on its needs and types of users.
