Hawai’i “Complete Streets” Law

August 3, 2009 at 3:18 pm Leave a comment

On May 6, Governor Linda Lingle signed S.B. 718 into law. Act 054, the Complete Streets law, requires the Hawaii DOT and the Counties to establish policies to accommodate all users of the road, no matter age, ability, or mode of transportation. Additionally, it creates a statewide task force to review existing state and county highway design standards and guidelines and propose changes to procedures and design manuals. Their final report is due to the State legislature prior to its convening in 2011.

To become involved in the implementation of Act 054 and other activities that support complete streets in the islands, contact the One Voice Coalition.

The bill has received attention from many local media outlets, including KMGB9 News, the Honolulu Advertiser, and KHON2.
