Call for Case Studies on Pandemic Era Street Redesigns

Source: Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC), Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE), and Toole Design

The Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC) has been documenting local efforts to support walking and bicycling during the pandemic and contributing to resources such as the Shifting Streets Dataset to track responses to changing demands on public space in order to provide references for researchers, practitioners, and other stakeholders.

As an extension of these efforts, PBIC, Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE), and Toole Design are seeking more information on projects that have provided more public space for walking, biking, rolling, recreation, and outdoor commerce during the COVID-19 pandemic era. This could be a project for slow, healthy, open streets, or a main street organization that built parklets, streeteries, an effort to convert parking space, or other type of project. See the "Shifting Streets" Glossary for terms and examples of street redesign efforts.

If you have a project that you would like to share, we invite you to provide information. We also encourage you to review the case study guide word document to review prompts as some questions may require collaboration. There are two ways to submit your information:

  1. Download and complete a Word document form and email to Dan Gelinne at
  2. Submit the information via an online form.

By completing this form, you are hereby granting permission for PBIC and its partners ITE and Toole Design, to use the information provided to produce a case study that will be publicly available on the PBIC website. You will retain all rights to any images shared but grant permission to include images in the case study.

If you have any questions about this effort, please contact Dan Gelinne for more information. Please submit the case study information by November 24, 2021.
