Improving Street Connectivity

Promote connectivity in local road systems in order to reduce the traffic load on collector and arterial streets and improve the walkability in your community. Typical approaches to improving connectivity include requiring subdivisions and office parks to have multiple ingress and egress points, disallowing cul-de-sacs and other closed street networks, encouraging use of interconnected grid street network designs, and establishing maximum block length standards.
