Come hear Preston Tyree, Director of Education for the League of American Bicyclists, speak on ‘Complete Streets’ and how they increase transportation choices at The Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center (625 C St.) on Tuesday, August 31, at 7 pm in the museum auditorium.
In communities across the country, a movement is growing to “complete the streets.” States, cities and towns are asking their planners and engineers to build road networks that are safer, more livable, and welcoming to everyone. Instituting a complete streets policy ensures that transportation planners and engineers consistently design and operate the entire roadway with all users in mind – including bicyclists, public transportation vehicles and riders, and pedestrians of all ages and abilities. Preston Tyree will speak on how this approach to street design can improve transportation choices, safety, and economic development.
This event is co-sponsored by Alaska Transportation Priorities Project, Bicycle Commuters of Anchorage, Anchorage Citizens Coalition, Alaska Center for the Environment, and the Spenard Complete Streets Coalition.
