Complete Streets are streets designed and operated to be safe for all users : pedestrians and drivers, transit riders and bicyclists, young and old, of all physical abilities. The Regional Complete Streets Study makes recommendations for transforming two corridors in the region into Complete Streets, and also contains a set of guidelines for turning other similar corridors into Complete Streets. The TPO's consultants will present the study to the public as a tool for transforming more streets into Complete Streets.

The two example corridors included in this study are:
* North Broadway in Knoxville's Fountain City Neighborhood, and
* Hall Road and Washington Street in Alcoa and Maryville.

The guidelines portion of the study describes the process of creating a Complete Street, as a guide for transforming other regional corridors.

The Regional Complete Streets Study was funded by the Tennessee Department of Transportation and conducted by planning consultants from Gresham, Smith & Partners (GS&P). The study will also be presented at the next meeting of the TPO Executive Committee, at 9 a.m. Wednesday, May 27, in the Small Assembly Room of the City County Building, downtown Knoxville. This meeting is also open to the public.
