Streets for Pandemic Response & Recovery

Street Plans is proud of the work our team has produced as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our firm worked alongside  NACTO, NACTO’s Global Designing Cities Initiative, Bloomberg Associates, Street Plans, and Sam Schwartz Consulting to create a resource that aggregates and synthesizes emerging practices in transportation and street design in response to the impacts of COVID-19. It highlights cities’ current efforts to re-organize streets to best manage this crisis and support economic recovery. 

As of May 21, 2020, Streets for Pandemic Response and Recovery includes an introduction to using streets for recovery and response (pdf) and detailed implementation information about the following street strategies:

  • Lanes for Biking & Rolling 
  • Sidewalk Extensions 
  • Transit Lanes
