Session 1 of the Safe Routes Academy, sponsored by the New Jersey Department of Transportation, will be "Cost-Effective Treatments: Testing Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Improvements Through Temporary Demonstration Projects."
Temporary demonstration projects, also known as “pop-up projects,” or “quick build projects,” are a community’s “try before you buy” opportunity to test small-scale solutions for reimagining roadways and other public spaces to improve safety and quality of life for all users using inexpensive materials. Examples of demonstration projects you may see include temporary bike lanes, pop-up parks and seating, curb extensions, street murals, decorative crosswalks, open street events, and other innovative ideas. This session will discuss the benefits of demonstration projects, how to approach them, and review some case studies from New Jersey.
