Street Plans Leads Demonstration Project in Portsmouth, NH

On Thursday, June 2, Mike Lydon led a demonstration project at the intersection of Islington and Bartlett Streets in Portsmouth, complete with new plants, parking spaces, crosswalks, a curb extension, and a parklet. The project provided an opportunity for 20 volunteers to temporarily transform an unsafe intersection, demonstrating possibilities for a safer and more desirable pedestrian environment, with slower traffic and enhanced public space.

The project was accomplished with a budget under $2,000, including the police detail for set-up and take-down, further emphasizing how providing people with low-cost experiences could lead to potential long-term change.
