Bernalillo County adopted a Complete Streets Ordinance in June, 2015. 

Complete streets provide a means of balancing our transportation system by including bicycling, walking, and transit facilities within our roadways. 

These facilities include but are not limited to sidewalks, bike lanes, multi-use trails, pedestrian crossings, and bus shelters.

Complete streets facilities will be included in new projects, rehabilitation/ retrofit projects, and some maintenance activities on 70 miles of collector and arterial roadways within the unincorporated area of Bernalillo County excluding the rural East Mountains (except on a case-by-case basis). 

The county has also adopted a pedestrian and bike plan that identifies non-motorized projects to be built within Bernalillo County.

The Mid-Region Council of Governments (MRCOG) has adopted Complete Streets policies as part of its 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP)

The MTP includes design guidelines (LRTS Guide) to be followed for future transportation projects throughout the region. 

A number of new transportation projects are proposed for Bernalillo County and region in the 2016-21 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) that will implement Complete Streets policy.
