What Complete Streets means for MDOTand transportation in Michigan
“Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind. Tothe fearful, it is threatening because it means that things may get worse.To the hopeful, it is encouraging because things may get better. To theconfident, it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make thingsbetter.” – King Whitney Jr., 1967 
These words about change are as true today as they were in 1967. On Aug. 1,Gov. Granholm signed into law Complete Streets legislation to advance cooperation andcoordination among transportation and local governmental agencies: Public Act 135,which amends Public Act 51 of 1951 governing the expenditure of state transportationfunding; and Public Act 134, which amends the Michigan Planning Enabling Act. Whileit might be tempting to attribute the passage of these bills to pressure from one group oranother, it is worth noting that both bills passed the Michigan House and Senate by widemargins: 85-21 and 31-0, respectively.Here is a summary of the changes to Act 51 under PA 135:
Revisions to Act 51, Section 10(k)
 
Requires counties, cities, villages, and MDOT to consult with one another whenplanning a nonmotorized project affecting a transportation facility that belongs tothe other.
 
 
Requires Section 10(k) improvements meet accepted practices or established bestpractices.
 
 
Requires Act 51 agencies to notify one another when their five-year nonmotorizedprograms are finalized.
