Hawai'i Complete Streets Policy

Health Equity Considerations

The Hawaii legislature amended state statutes to require the Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) and Hawaii’s four county transportation departments to adopt complete streets policies that accommodate all users of the roadways, including pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users, motorists and persons of all ages and abilities. The state-level policy seeks to change the built environment to affect as many people as possible creating a population-level impact. New or redeveloped state and county roads that include sidewalks, crosswalks with ADA crossing signals and curb cuts provide people with physical disabilities access and opportunities not previously legally required.
