The city of Indianapolis’ streets are the best in the county.

The National Complete Streets Coalition said the city designs streets with all users in mind.

Mayor Greg Ballard signed the ordinance into law last August.

Crosswalk improvements on MLK, new curbs near Keystone and new bike lanes in Broad Ripple are just a few of the improvements we’ve seen.

The goal is to make the city more walkable, bikeable and connected.

“Those things are good not just for public health in turns of creating opportunities for physical activity but they also reduce auto emissions, they reduce the air pollution that we have,” said Kim Irwin with Health by Design.

Health by Design is coordinating the effort.  They’ll continue to monitor the city’s progress over the next few years.
