Safer Streets: Sidewalks and Other Walkways

Sidewalks before and after

What is it?

Sidewalks and other walkways separate people from traffic lanes, providing safety, mobility, and access to active travel options. They allow people of all abilities to reach businesses, transit, schools, and other daily destinations.

How does it make a difference?

Creating a separated space for people of all ages to safely walk or use their mobility device to travel is critical for a safe and accessible transportation system.
