Caltrans Complete Streets has been recognized as top safe, smart transportation policy
- Southern California: A new three-mile bikeway was built in 2011 along State Route 1 (Pacific Coast Highway), and the completion of this project created a continuous bikeway from Orange County to Long Beach and has further enhanced safety for bicyclists and pedestrians.
- Fresno: Curb ramps that meet standards set in the Americans with Disabilities Act were constructed at various locations in the city of Fresno from Central Avenue to McKinley Avenue.
- Bay Area: A new pedestrian crossing (where previously prohibited) was built in Daly City on State Route 82 (El Camino Real) across El Camino Real to connect to a new transit plaza at John Daly Boulevard and a nearby transit station; installed aesthetic crosswalk treatments at the El Camino/John Daly intersection; provided high-visibility crosswalks along El Camino Real.
