safer walking, improved transit, protected bikeways

This fall, Bike Easy and a coalition of partners worked with the City of New Orleans to successfully 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, taken up in mid-December as planned, provided a platform for community discussions about making mobility in New Orleans safe and accessible for everyone.

We have talked to over 300 businesses and residents and will continue to gather feedback over the next few weeks to better understand everyone’s experience with the demonstration. These responses will help inform a report on the projects successes and lessons learned to be publicly shared by the end of January. So far, the response has been overwhelmingly positive!


Connect the Crescent was a demonstration of a continuous, protected transportation network consisting of enhanced crosswalks, improvements to transit, and protected bikeways which featured barriers separating people biking from automobile traffic on routes leading to and through New Orleans’ French Quarter and Central Business District.
