Kingston Complete Streets is a part of a national movement to promote accessibility for all users that a growing number of communities in the Puget Sound region and throughout Washington, especially those located along state highways, use as a tool to develop policies and ordinances related to transportation facilities including roads and sidewalks. The Kingston Complete Streets plan encompasses the Kingston Urban Village Center from the ferry terminal to Lindvog Road and from Third Street to the Village Green off West Kingston Road.
The scope of the project includes streetscape planning, design and maintenance that enables safe, convenient travel and access for users of all ages and abilities, regardless of their mode of transportation
