St. Petersburg Complete Streets Implementation Plan

The City of St. Petersburg adopted a Complete Streets Policy in 2015 to encourage streets that are safe and convenient for all users of the roadway, including walkers, bicyclists, motorists, persons with disabilities, users and operators of public transit, seniors, children, and movers of commercial goods. Kimley-Horn developed a Complete Streets Implementation Plan that describes a set of procedures for prioritizing and implementing complete streets through a variety of methods.

The plan will establish the project delivery process modifications needed to improve the evaluation, planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance phases of all roadway development and redevelopment projects. It will also document existing conditions and barriers; identify corridors and districts that are prime for complete streets improvements; establish a network of low-stress bicycle routes; and identify additional facilities needed to make walking, bicycling, and transit safe and comfortable choices.
