WEBINAR: Speeding Up Slow Street Projects

Wednesday, July 1
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Hosted by: APA Massachusetts

If you’re like us, you and your neighbors have started walking, biking, and dining outdoors more since the unexpected arrival of social distancing and empty streets. Even with limited resources, municipalities are finding ways to swiftly and creatively adapt to these new demands while also considering how they can be achieved effectively and potentially shift the future of local transportation. Attendees will hear how three municipalities are responding to these demands by fast-tracking slow street projects to improve safety, equitably advance access, and support local economies during the era of social distancing and beyond.

• Arlington, Massachusetts – Shared Streets Pilot Project
• East Providence, Rhode Island - Watchemoket Square
• Milan, Italy – Open Streets Adaptation Strategy

Transportation planners involved with the planning and implementation of each case study will discuss context-specific street design approaches used for accommodating new uses as well as the approaches to decision-making and outreach for pilot projects. Each case study will address funding options, how to equitably and thoughtfully prioritize pilots, and best practice recommendations for project monitoring. Most importantly, attendees will hear about lessons learned on the ground and take part in the global discussion of what long-term impacts these fast-tracked projects will have on our future road networks and communities.
