Contact: Bill Shreck, Acting Director of Communications, 517-335-3084
Agency: Transportation

April 21, 2011 -- The Complete Streets Advisory Council is holding its inaugural meeting on Wednesday, April 27, at the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) Van Wagoner Building in Lansing, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. The meeting is open to the public.

The 16-member council was appointed last fall in accordance with Public Act 135 of 2010. The group's role, according to law, is to advise the State Transportation Commission, county road commissions and municipalities on Complete Streets policies. The law also requires the State Transportation Commission to enact a Complete Streets policy by August 2012. A "complete street" refers to a roadway that provides appropriate access to all legal users, including motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians and those traveling by assistive devices such as wheelchairs.

Be advised that there is extensive construction activity in the public space surrounding the Van Wagoner Building. Those visiting the building are required to use the south entrance facing the plaza, should follow the directional signs and proceed with caution through the construction areas. Visitors are required to show a photo ID to building security staff to enter the Van Wagoner Building. For information, please contact Karen Martin at 517-373-0343.

Complete Streets Advisory Council members represent road and transit agencies, state agencies, walking and biking organizations, environmental, senior citizens and disabled persons groups. More information is available on the MDOT Web site at:
