Shared & Slow Streets Program
The City of Madison Shared Streets Program was launched in April 2020 as part of the City’s Covid-19 response. This program was intended to:
Shared Streets were open for people walking, running, biking, rolling and closed to pass through traffic. The Shared Streets program was paused in late fall 2020 for the winter season. The City gathered input through an online survey and the information was provided in a report to the Transportation Commission.
Slow Streets 2021
Looking forward the 2021 program will focus on transition from a focus on providing more space during the pandemic to longer term support for walking, biking and community building. The City of Madison wants to make the City more welcoming and accessible for people of all ages and abilities who want to travel by foot, using a mobility device, by bicycle or scooter.
