2nd year of workshops teach Complete Streets planning, implementation

Thanks to funding from the Federal Highway Administration, and with assistance from transportation professionals at Georgia Department of Transportation and Alta Planning + Design, we coordinated a second series of traveling workshops to share best practices for creating safe, Complete Streets that serve all users (here's a re-cap of our first series of workshops in 2013). Our 2014 Workshops were held in Albany, Macon, Milledgeville, and Valdosta

Each workshop consisted of presentations on the importance and benefits of creating bikable, walkable streets and roads, an overview of the GDOT Complete Streets policy, and best practices in planning, designing, and building bicycle facilities that appeal to the broadest range of users. The second half of the workshops involved bus tours of corridors and intersections that either demonstrated Complete Streets princicples or exemplified areas that need improvement.

Many thanks to our local partners who helped identify bus tour routes and stops. Below are photos from the four successful workshops of 2014.
