Complete Streets Prioritization Plan to access up to $400,000 of state funds per year for construction of approved projects

The MassDOT Complete Streets Funding Program was initiated by MassDOT to help communities create streets that provide safe and accessible options for all travel modes – walking, biking, transit, and vehicles- for people of all ages and abilities.  Designing streets with these principles contributes toward safety health, economic viability and quality of life.

The Town of Milton has received state approval to develop a Complete Streets Prioritization Plan, which, with the help of the consulting firm of Howard Stein Hudson, will rank viable projects to access up to $400,000 of state funds per year for construction of approved projects.

Types of eligible projects include, but are not limited to: bicycle lanes, new or improved sidewalks, curb ramps, improved pedestrian crossings, benches, bus shelters, and more. Community input is a vital part of the development of this plan- read below for a few ways to get involved!

PUBLIC MEETING – Will be held in early 2018. More details to follow.

The Town of Milton will host a public meeting to discuss our work on a Complete Streets Prioritization Plan. The Town and our consultant team, Howard Stein Hudson, will introduce the Complete Streets Program, present initial findings, and gather feedback from the community.

If you would like additional information about the plan, please contact William Clark, Director of Planning & Community Development, or John Thompson, P.E., the Town Engineer.
