Atlanta Uses Quick-Build Projects to Engage Community and Improve Road Safety for Young Pedestrians and Bicyclists

Source: Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC) and Vision Zero for Youth

Communities across the United States are embracing low-cost, quick-build materials, approaches, and techniques to advance road safety. In 2022, the City of Atlanta received a grant from the National Center for Safe Routes to School to support the implementation of a walk/bike lane near a middle school as part of a “quick-build projects” pilot program created to improve road safety for youth. This case study provides a glimpse of the project and offers several insights that can inform other communities interested in using quick-build approaches to support community engagement and advance road safety.
