Complete Streets Bill Signed Into Law by Gov. Gregoire

I am standing outside the halls of the Governor's office with a gaggle of other people waiting for the bill signing of ESB 1071, our complete streets grant program.

We anticipate the governor will be signing this without any problems.

I'll update here once this bill, which establishes a complete streets grant program and directs WSDOT to apply complete streets principals to their projects inside of cities, becomes a law.  A great victory for us this session!

Thank you for all of your help as advocates on this victory.

UPDATE: ESHB 1071 was just signed into law by Governor Gregoire! Great news!


  1. Will this have any effect on current projects?

  2. No, it only applies to projects that have not yet started the design or build process.
