HSH is working with several cities and towns to create a Complete Streets Prioritization Plans that widen MassDOT’s required scope to include tools the cities/towns can use to take advantage of development mitigation, repaving work, and other opportunities. Each prioritization plan will include Bicycle Level of Comfort maps and Pedestrian Level of Comfort maps, as well as a measure of latent bicycle and pedestrian demand. The scope of work includes compiling existing data and studies; significant data collection including signal and ADA inventories; and identification of 15 or more top projects for increasing walking and biking. The prioritization plan will serve as a Complete Streets game plan for the municipality for the next five years and will be easily updatable so the municipality can use it for decades to come.
