This fall, Bike Easy and a coalition of partners are working with the City of New Orleans to install a 3-month "pop-up" demonstration of a connected, protected roadway network to show how streets can be transformed to safely and equitably serve everyone who travels in New Orleans. This temporary demonstration, ending in mid-December, provides a platform for community discussions about making mobility in New Orleans safe and accessible for everyone.
Connect the Crescent is a demonstration of a continuous, protected transportation network consisting of enhanced crosswalks, improvements to transit, and protected bikeways which feature 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 its safety, accessibility, convenience, and community programming lead to permanent infrastructure improvements across New Orleans and the region.
Get out and ride the Connect The Crescent biking and walking network! Then tell us about your experience.
