Webinar: Quick Build Networks for All (Part I)
Date: May 19, 2020
Time: 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm ET
Organization: Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC)
Cities across the US are planning and prioritizing low-stress networks that support bicycling and walking, working to integrate active travel into their transportation system. This two-part webinar series will profile the experiences of several cities – Houston, Minneapolis, and San Jose – as they start turning their plans into action. Using rapid deployment and quick-build techniques, these cities are delivering multimodal facilities to support safety and comfort and broader community goals. Learn about their experiences with managing community engagement and maintenance, integrating equity, universal design, and micromobility, and considering a host of other factors into their design decisions. Cities will share examples of their projects and lessons learned before taking questions from the audience.
During Part I of this series, panelists will introduce trends in quick-build project delivery and principles of multimodal transportation networks. Panelists from Houston, TX, will showcase their recent progress in planning and delivering networks for bicycling and walking.
