The Carson Area MPO is conducting a Complete Streets Corridor Study to identify priorities for this important commercial corridor and to develop a conceptual design for a planned project.
The Carson City Public Works Department is also seeking business and property owners along the corridor for participation in a corridor advisory work group. The group will provide input going forward on the conceptual study as well as the future efforts to design South Carson Street. Per an agreement with the Nevada Department of Transportation, Carson City is required to start construction on the portion of Carson Street south of Fairview Drive no later than 2019. The details on how the advisory work group will operate are still being worked out, but it is intended that the group will meet quarterly starting this summer.
What are Complete Streets? Complete Streets are streets for everyone. They are designed and operated to enable safe access and comfortable accommodation for all users of all ages and abilities; including pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and motorists of all types. As an added benefit, Complete Streets support economic development and enhance the visual experience for users. In addition to accommodating motorists on the roadway, Complete Streets focuses on the needs of travelers outside that group, including younger or older people, those with disabilities, and those who travel by transit, bicycle, or on foot, and who have oftentimes been overlooked in the transportation planning process. Complete Streets is about safety and efficiency as well. Complete Streets provides a better quality of life, often through measurable environmental benefits, and can spur economic development.
