Complete Streets & Active Transportation

Creating better mobility options

When you start with the end goal in mind, you create meaningful change. The end goal? Better and smarter choices for how people get around their communities: be that four wheels, two wheels, or two feet. We work with clients to design and integrate transit, vehicle, bicycle, and pedestrian modes that provide smarter mobility choices.

From planning to design to construction, our Complete Streets & Active Transportation team’s proactive approach leads to greater involvement from everyone touched by these projects. We’ve contributed grant writing and run bicycle safety workshops for communities, showing that we’re active participants in the communities we serve. 

Promoting a healthy lifestyle and improving overall mobility enhances the vitality of a community. We center designs that give people those improved options through aesthetically pleasing infrastructure—whether we’re designing a complete street, a pedestrian trail, a bikeway, or a bus rapid transit corridor.

In our hands, concepts and ideas turn into one-of-a-kind realities that change lives and communities for the better.

It takes a village

When a bypass leads to dramatic change in local traffic patterns, Stantec’s Mike Rutkowski leads a charrette-based planning process to help Rolesville, North Carolina residents re-envision their main street.

We make the most of developing techniques to enhance your existing infrastructure.
