In July 2015, Local Motion, DuBois & King, the Burlington Dept. of Public Works and Street Plans Collaborative partnered together and set up temporary street redesigns to show how bike lanes can increase safety for non-motorized street users and how with a little thought and planning cyclists, walkers and cars can all coincide peacefully on our streets. This effort was just featured in Design Museum Magazine!
The article introduces general concepts such as "tactical urbanism", "parking protected" and "planter-protected " bike lanes as well as provides context for when and how to best implement them. It summarizes the work that went into the project, the positive reaction of users and neighborhood residents alike, and makes a really good case for the continued exploration and implementation of building bike/walk friendly components into all current and future street designs. To read the full article (which you should do because it's great) please visit the Design Museum Magazine. The article is entitled "Prototyping Safer Streets Demonstration Projects in Burlington, VT" and starts on page 24.
