In early 2021, California Transportation Plan (CTP) 2050 was approved by California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA); it provides a common framework for guiding transportation decisions and investments by all levels of government and the private sector. Shortly after, Complete Street Decision Document was implemented by Caltrans to record key decisions to incorporate complete streets facilities in projects on the State highway system.

Later in the year, CalSTA released the final Climate Action Plan for Transportation Infrastructure (CAPTI); this plan details how the state recommends investing billions of discretionary transportation dollars annually to aggressively combat and adapt to climate change while supporting public health, safety and equity.

In December the Caltrans Director's Policy 37 was released. It states: "In locations with current and/or future pedestrian, bicycle, or transit needs, all transportation projects funded or overseen by Caltrans will provide comfortable, convenient, and connected complete streets facilities for people walking, biking, and taking transit or passenger rail unless an exception is documented and approved."

Join us to hear the latest and how those documents will play a part in programs and projects.
