Building Complete Streets with Smart and Connected Technologies [Venture Smarter]

Complete Street Description Graphic

Streets and Sidewalks can be enhanced and optimized using smart and connected technologies. As we add a prioritization lens for "complete street" projects, it is timely to add a "smart and connected" prioritization layer on top of that so we can better monitor pedestrian and traffic counts, track environmental and situational changes, streamline parking, make transit more accessible, and enable best-practices public safety for pedestrians, bikers, and vehicles, alike. As we venture into the age of autonomous transportation, the municipalities that add a "smart and connected" prioritization will come out ahead with connected corridors that allow and promote advanced and autonomous transportation and transit solutions as much as alternative transportation options like walking and biking.
