28 states and more than 300 local governments recognize the need to create a street network that is safe for everyone, regardless of age, income, or how they choose to travel. American Energy and Infrastructure Jobs Act does little to ensure that an infrastructure investment funds the most beneficial projects for our communities. A Complete Streets provision absent in this Act would make each dollar work harder by ensuring every project helps improve safety for school children, workers without cars needing to get to jobs, and seniors walking to downtown. It would also help boost job creation by investing in bicycling and walking facilities and in public transportation projects that produce more jobs than roadways for automobiles alone.
Thank you for asking USDOT to measure people, not just cars - Thank you!
