In the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, planners, engineers, and policymakers around the world quickly implemented new street design and management tools to keep our cities moving and respond in-time to the crisis. These street management strategies helped people access medical services, grocery stores, vote, get outside for fresh air, and express their first amendment rights. How we use and manage our streets will continue to evolve as we continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and transition to long-term recovery.
Streets for Pandemic Response and Recovery
Emerging practices from around the world, with implementation resources for cities and their partners. Recognizing the rapidly changing nature of this pandemic, Streets for Pandemic Response and Recovery has been continually revised and expanded to include new strategies, address changing conditions, and provide the latest lessons learned on each design practice.
NACTO has collected photographs that capture the fast-paced, broad range of pandemic response strategies adopted by cities and transit agencies over the past year.
NACTO awarded SPRR funding to ten community-based projects to support cities as they adapt streets to promote public health, safe mobility, and local economies.
