The National Complete Streets Coalition defines Complete Streets as facilities that are designed and operated to enable safe access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities. Complete Streets make it easy to cross the street, walk to shops, and bicycle to work. They allow buses to run on time and make it safe for people to walk to and from train stations.
TPD’s Complete Streets and Trails Design experience spans facilities such as walking and biking trails, bus depots, intermodal and on- and off-road connections, as well as streetscapes, and more. TPD supports non-profit agencies in the region, working to implement intermodal connections, complete streets solutions and active transportation (walking and biking) facilities. Our bicycle and pedestrian experts serves on the Board of Directors for PA Walks and Bikes and have provided Complete Streets and Safe Routes to School Training for statewide, regional and local audiences. TPD has worked with many communities and trail partners to plan and design key on-road and off-road bicycle links throughout the region. TPD’s trail experience includes a range of projects from trail crossing treatments and on-road facilities to off-road alignments. TPD has completed various project-related tasks including: conceptual planning and cost estimating, public meetings/graphics, preliminary feasibility studies, grant writing and funding source identification, environmental and right-of-way, impact analysis, permitting, design, construction management, and construction inspection.
