Transportation Highlights in Tompkins County
COMPLETE STREETS NETWORK MAP
The ITCTC has produced a map of the Complete Streets Network identified by its Planning Committee. The map shows a well coordinated network of roads for the urbanized area of Tompkins County. A ‘Complete Street’ is a street designed and operated to enable safe access for all users regardless of their mode of transportation, so that pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists or public transportation users of all ages and abilities are able to move safely along and across it.
Note: This map will reside permanently on the ITCTC Completed Projects, Studies, and Maps page under Complete Streets Network Map, March 2015.
