The Department of Transportation & Mobility works in coordination with other departments to plan, design and implement a variety of transportation projects. These projects are implemented following a complete streets approach to accommodate users of all types, with an emphasis on safety, equity and sustainability. Projects range in size and are typically implemented in one of three ways:
Pilot Projects - short-term demonstration projects using temporary or semi-permanent materials to test new ideas, educate the public and collect data and feedback on results.
Interim Complete Streets Measures - primarily using pavement markings, semi-permanent materials and curb alignments to make safety and access improvements pending long-term redesign and reconstruction projects. Mostly taking place as part of City financed pavement preservation project, but also as stand-alone isolated projects funded by a variety of means. May or may not include sidewalk improvements, depending on the scope of the pavement preservation project.
Permanent Complete Streets Projects - comprehensive street improvement projects that involve a complete redesign and reconstruction of a corridor, based on a public design process, using permanent materials as part of City financed roadway reconstruction projects, TIP or other federal/state aid projects and grant funded projects. Typically includes comprehensive upgrades to sidewalks, bicycle facilities, street alignment, traffic signals and control systems and street lighting.
