Complete Streets policies continue to be popular across the US, despite a provision on the issue being rescinded from the recent federal transportation bill. More than 350 US states, counties, and communities have adopted Complete Streets policies, including 146 policies in 2011 alone, according to the Complete Streets Policy Analysis 2011 by Smart Growth America and the National Complete Streets Coalition, released August 15.

The coalition also grades the policies, identifying 21 of the best. These include five states: New Jersey, Louisiana, California, Minnesota, and Connecticut.
