In a continuing effort to make Nassau’s roads the safest in the nation, the County Legislature approved the Complete Streets program that ensures Nassau will consider all users of roadways, pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit riders in planning and design of new and current roadways.
By including Complete Streets principles in the design and construction of future road projects, Nassau County will be able to accommodate and facilitate safety for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists. These design principles include paved shoulders and bicycle lanes, suitable to encourage bicycle riders. Other designs would improve sidewalks, signage, crosswalks, pedestrian signalization and traffic calming methods designed to allow pedestrian and motor vehicles to safely coexist.
