Louisiana’s Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) adopted a Complete Streets policy in 2010, which has been ranked the second strongest policy in the nation by the National Complete Streets Coalition. New Orleans was the first city in Louisiana to adopt a Complete Streets policy on the local level, and the CPEX CONNECT Coalition continues to champion Complete Streets policy adoption in Louisiana cities, parishes and regions as a top policy priority.

The Complete Streets Policy Manual is a free resource outlining the steps to policy adoption and featuring a step-by-step look at the New Orleans policy process. Elected and appointed officials, as well advocacy groups, interested in adopting Complete Streets policies on the local level are encouraged to download this manual to learn more about how to adopt Complete Streets legislation.
