The goal City of Raleigh's Complete Streets Implementation Program is to construct projects that improve safety, access, mobility, and connectivity of existing streets for all users. Improvements made under this program may include, but are not limited to:

  • Sidewalks and pedestrian safety improvements, such as traffic signals, roundabouts, curb extensions, high visibility crossings, and shared use pathways;
  • Bicycle safety improvements, such as bike lanes, separated bicycle facilities, sharrows, and signal detection;
  • ADA compliance and accessibility;
  • Transit infrastructure, such as bus shelters, benches, trash cans, and pads;
  • Street trees, landscaping, pedestrian-level lighting, street furniture;
  • Adequate stormwater/drainage facilities;
  • Updated traffic markings, and signage.

Scoring Methodology & Project Prioritization

Projects are identified through the 2030 Comprehensive Plan, area, neighborhood, spot safety, and corridor plans, as well as citizen requests and in response to operational concerns. Potential projects are scored and prioritized using the below methodology, which was adopted by City Council on October 6, 2020.
