Dighton Complete Streets

Welcome to the Dighton Complete Streets Home Page

The Town of Dighton is participating in the MassDOT Complete Streets Funding Program to make implementation of multimodal accommodations a part of daily municipal work. "Complete Streets" are roadways that safely and comfortably accommodate all users, regardless of age and ability or mode of transportation. In 2017, SRPEDD helped the town develop a Complete Streets Prioritization Plan (a list of projects and a map series). Thanks to this work, Dighton is currently a Tier 3 community (see more below) and is in the process of applying for Complete Streets capital funding.

Additional information about the MassDOT Complete Streets Funding Program and all project presentations, information, and resources can be found in the document library of this webpage.

What are Complete Streets?

What are Complete Streets?

Complete Streets are roadways that safely and comfortably accommodate all users, regardless of age and ability or mode of transportation. Users include, but are not limited to: motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians, motorists, emergency responders, transit and school bus riders, delivery and service personnel, and freight haulers. Complete Streets components can include roadway design features such as ADA compliant sidewalks and crossings, curb extensions, bicycle lanes, shared use pavement markings, bus shelters and pull-outs, wayfinding signage, landscaping, street lighting, and many other items.

MassDOT Complete Streets Funding Program

The MassDOT Complete Streets Funding Program was launched in February 2016 to provide technical assistance and construction funding to communities that demonstrate a commitment to include Complete Streets in policy and practice. In short, a community may be eligible for up to $400,000 in construction funding to implement Complete Streets elements in municipal projects and up to $35,000 in technical assistance funding in order to develop a plan to do so. The program is divided into three (3) “tiers” and a municipality must satisfy the requirements of the previous tier in order to advance through the program.


Tier 1 - Training & Policy Adoption

  • Attendance at either an "Introductory" or "Advanced" Complete Streets Training (must be a municipal official/employee)
  • Development and local adoption of a Complete Streets policy. Followed by submission to MassDOT for approval.

Tier 2 - Prioritization Plan Development

  • Determination of Complete Streets needs and development of a prioritized list of infrastructure projects. Technical assistance available (up to $35,000 to develop the plan).

Tier 3 - Project Construction Funding

  • Application for construction funding to implement the Complete Streets infrastructure projects on the Prioritization Plan.
