Cost-Effective Treatments: Testing Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Improvements Through Temporary Demonstration Projects

This session is part of the NJ Safe Routes Academy

Sep 08, 2022
12:00 pm to 1:30 pm


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 around New Jersey 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.  The NJ Safe Routes Academy, sponsored by the NJ Department of Transportation, features free online sessions to help participants make their communities more walk- and bike-friendly for people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.  To learn more about all of the sessions, visit the NJ Safe Routes Academy Website.
