Around the country, cities and communities are experimenting with pop-up and quick-build projects. Using low-cost materials like paint, concrete wheel stops, and flexible posts, these projects offer community members and decision makers a chance to try temporary infrastructure improvements that can provide immediate safety improvements, give feedback, and identify what will work best for the community. The City of Cincinnati has used quick-build approaches in resourceful, innovative ways, applying quick-build tools and techniques to address an urgent safety problem threatening child pedestrians that will stay in place until implementation of a full street redesign. The project offers several insights that can inform other cities interested in implementing quick-build projects.
