Complete Streets Corridor Working Group

Overview

Complete Streets Corridor Working Group

SACOG launched the Complete Streets Corridor Working Group to overcome challenges to retrofitting infill corridors as complete streets to support place-making and economic vitality in urban, suburban, and small town settings. Outcomes will accelerate local implementation of the MTP/SCS through technical assistance. 

​This project is funded in part by a Sustainable Communities Planning Grant from the California Strategic Growth Council.

The working group is composed of city and county public works and planning staff from interested jurisdictions.

The Corridor Working Groups meets monthly through the end of 2017.

  • February: Defined complete streets implementation challenges
  • March: Vision Zero
  • April: Economics of Infill and Redevelopment
  • May: Project Planning for the Future of Transportation
  • June: Retrofit of Mid Century Autocentric Corridors
  • July: Low Stress Bikeways
  • August: Place Making, Public Art and Green Streets
  • September: Approaches to Current and Emerging Transportation Technologies
  • October: Performance Measurement, Project Prioritization and Funding
  • November: Case Study Wrap-up

May Working Group Meeting
Project planning for the future of transportation

With SB 743 shifting the metrics from level of service to vehicle miles traveled as a basis for determining significant impacts of projects, how can planners and engineers approach projects and achieve positive outcomes? (SB 743 Implementation Presentation)

What are the opportunities to use the new metrics to plan and design retrofits to your existing roadways to reduce VMT, as well as exemptions and mitigations? (Place Types, Street Typologies, & Layered Networks Presentation)

March Working Group Meeting
Vision Zero

What is Vision Zero? How can you collaborate to make decisions about a safer built environment to reduce injuries and fatalities and improve traffic safety? (presentation)

What is the City of Sacramento doing with Vision Zero, and what can local cities and counties learn from their data analysis? (presentation)

The working group examined the Vision Zero process and examples of this effort in other cities.

February Working Group Meeting
Summary

At the February meeting the working group defined a set of complete streets implementation challenges and selected a transportation engineering consultant to guide the working group through solutions to these challenges.  

As part of this effort, the consultant and working group will examine five case study corridors throughout the region that represent the range of complete streets challenges in the region.
