Every two years, Complete Streets Awards are awarded by the Washington State Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) to cities and counties who work to make streets safe for people who bike, walk, drive, and use transit. This grant program was established (but unfunded) by state legislation in 2011. Then in 2015, the Washington State Legislature allocated $105 million over 16 years through the Washington State Transportation Package to support the grant program.

This fall, WSDOT will remove traffic lights on SR 500 at Northeast Falk Road/Northeast 42nd Avenue and Northeast 54th Avenue/Northeast Stapleton Road in Vancouver, and install a barrier in the middle of the highway, to address safety and crash concerns for vehicles. We applaud that these changes are predicted to reduce the number of collisions at or near the intersections by up to 70 percent.
