The complete streets design philosophy is a shift in the focus of the planning and designing of roads in the United States. The complete streets approach starts with a realization that transportation shapes a city’s outcomes on many more levels than moving vehicles. Considering the myriad benefits of complete streets, calculating a benefit-to-cost ratio often helps projects to “sell themselves.” This presentation will discuss the basics of complete street planning and best practices, how benefit-to-cost ratios can be calculated, and present case studies in Ottawa, KS, Hays, KS, and Kansas City, Missouri.
