About the Project

Complete Streets is a street design approach that aims to balance the needs of all residents regardless of their mode of transportation, age, physical mobility or socioeconomic status.

Lethbridge has multiple plans which encourage different transportation options like walking, cycling and transit. These include:

  • Integrated Community Sustainability Plan / Municipal Development Plan

  • Transportation Master Plan

  • Cycling Master Plan

Complete Streets principles link these plans to our design standards creating more livable neighbourhoods that provide options for residents.

Complete Streets helps us ensure our streets are safe, cost-effective and equitable, while making efficient use of land and promoting good health. 

Various Complete Streets guidelines, projects and policies are in place in over 80 municipalities across Canada, including 9 in Alberta.
