What is a "complete street?" Complete streets are referred to infrastructure projects that incorporate certain design features that make the road friendlier to both, pedestrians and motorists. These projects are meant to implement items like:
New Concrete Sidewalk and Curbs
On street parking
Traffic Calming Improvements
Roadway Milling & Resurfacing
New Signing & Pavement Marking
Palmetto Bay is currently in the planning stages for several Complete Street projects. The project information has been included below.
All projects are currently in the design & permitting phase. Next, the village will put out an Invitation to Bid or ITB to solicit cost information from interested bidders before the project is brought before the Village Council for approval and allocation of funding for the construction phase.
