Complete Streets

Andover Complete Streets Logo

The Town of Andover Complete Street policy was approved on in October of 2022. In 2023, the Town will begin preparing a five-year Prioritization Plan containing a list of anticipated transportation projects. This list will help guide Andover towards an enhanced multimodal transportation network to meet the needs of those who walk, bike and drive in Andover.

What are Complete Streets?

Complete Streets are streets for everyone. Complete Streets is an approach to planning, designing, building, operating, and maintaining streets that enables safe access for all people who need to use them, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities.

What does a Complete Street look like?

There is no singular design prescription for Complete Streets. Each one is unique and responds to its community context. A complete street may include: sidewalks, bike lanes (or wide paved shoulders), special bus lanes, comfortable and accessible public transportation stops, frequent and safe crosswalks, median islands, accessible pedestrian signals, curb extensions, narrower travel lanes, roundabouts, and more.


The Town of Andover invites residents to provide their comments on existing street conditions to help determine and prioritize Complete Streets projects in town. This interactive tool provides residents with an opportunity to indicate areas where we can improve safety and provide a better environment for pedestrians, bicyclists and transit users. Comments will be recorded to help determine and prioritize candidate locations for Complete Streets projects. A mobile friendly version is available here.
