Complete Streets

All meetings shall be posted with a minimum 72 hours notice on the IMCAL events calendar as well as the meeting notice section of the American Press newspaper.

Not all streets are initially designed to meet the needs of all relevant road users.

Completing streets can not only benefit quality of life for our region, but can help decrease congestion and improve the economic vitality of surrounding neighborhoods.

The Complete Streets Advisory Committee was established in order to become a reliable source of information for public officials of municipalities within the Greater Lake Charles Urbanized Area, to provide recommendations to the TAC for future mobility and Complete Streets Projects using existing Right-Of-Way, and to support current and future applicable multi-modal plan.

Voting members include representatives from

  • LaDOTD – District 7
  • City of Lake Charles
  • East Municipalities of the Lake Charles Urbanized Area
  • West Municipalities of the Lake Charles Urbanized Area
  • Calcasieu Parish Police Jury
  • CEO of Community Foundation of SWLA
  • SWLA and Lake Charles Convention and Visitors’ Bureau
  • Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Office
  • Community Runners
  • Mayor’s Commission on Disability
  • Community At-Large
  • Community Cyclists

IMCAL is dedicated to transportation planning for all modes of travel and the well being of our region.

The MPO staff works closely with our partner cities and parish, as well as multiple community groups and organizations to provide expertise and make this vision come to life.
