Complete Streets

Barrington “Complete Streets” draft plan for review, August-September 2022

Public Information Sessions & Request for Resident Input, August 2022

The town of Barrington is seeking resident input on sidewalks and bikeways throughout Town!  The Town’s “Complete Streets” plan was drafted in 2021, and approved by the Planning Board in June 2022 with the intent of identifying priority roadways with strategies to improve walking and bicycling connectivity and safety. Improvements can include new and reconstructed sidewalks, accessible ramps, crosswalk striping, road lane widths and shoulders, signage, and speed limit adjustments.

Complete Streets policy is established on the principle that users of all ages and abilities of all streets require access to safe facilities. Modes of transportation are focused on pedestrians, cyclists, public transit and school bus riders, motorists, drivers of delivery trucks, and emergency responders.

The objectives of Barrington’s Complete Streets plan include:

  • Remove or reduce barriers that limit access to destinations
  • Connect destinations across Town
  • Create and maintain safe routes to schools
  • Promote linkages to open spaces, trail networks, Town Beach, and access points to the coastline

Input received during these events will help lay the groundwork for next steps!  Questions? Check out the website for details or contact Town Planner Teresa Crean at tcrean@barrington.ri.gov or 401-247-1900 x347
