Safer Walking -- Improved Transit -- Protected Bikeways
In September Bike Easy and a broad coalition of community partners are working with the City of New Orleans to install a series of “pop-up” roadway renovations for 3 months to engage the community in a conversation around how our streets can be transformed safely, inexpensively and equitably for everyone in our city.
Connect the Crescent will demonstrate a continuous, protected transportation network using temporary materials and will consist of enhanced crosswalks, improvements to transit, and protected bikeways featuring barriers separating people biking from automobile traffic on routes leading to and through New Orleans’ French Quarter and Central Business District.
We expect this transportation network to be experienced by tens of thousands of residents and visitors. We hope it’s safety, accessibility, convenience, and community programming lead to permanent infrastructure improvements across New Orleans and the region.
