18th Ave. S. Project Update: Presentation and corridor alternatives available for review. Learn more.
Complete Streets create better transportation environments for people of all ages and physical and economic abilities to safely and comfortably move around the city. Complete Streets are flexible and take into account the surrounding land uses they’re intended to serve and related transportation network connections. St. Pete is fortunate in that the street network is a grid, providing significant transportation mode options and viable route alternatives. Complete Streets aims to make strategic connections and improvements within the grid of streets such that a network of routes and facilities are provided for all modes to safely and comfortably reach all parts of the city. Learn more about the Complete Streets program in this presentation.
The City of St. Petersburg adopted a Complete Streets Policy on November 2, 2015 (#020400), which was echoed by a Complete Streets City Council Resolution 2015-540, to encourage streets that are safe and convenient for all users of the roadway, including persons walking, persons riding bicycles, motorists, persons with disabilities, users and operators of public transit, seniors, children, and movers of commercial goods.
The final versions of the Complete Streets Implementation Plan and Appendices can be found below.
Project Summary – 18th Avenue South Complete Streets Concept Planning Study
Neighborhoods surrounding 18th Ave. S. have low rates of motor vehicle ownership and high rates of transit use, making it even more important that walking, bicycling and accessing bus stops are safe, comfortable, and convenient options.
This study builds on the work of the recently completed 18th Avenue South Health Impact Assessment and will identify conceptual plans for the portion of 18th Ave. S. from 34th St. to 16th St. that reallocates the street space so that it is shared equitably among all users and all transportation modes.
