COVID Lessons Learned: From Tactical to Practical

COVID Lessons Learned: From Tactical to Practical

The pandemic spurred tremendous innovation in tactical approaches to expand the capacity of our streets to more safely accommodate people and commerce. These experiments validated the demand for complete streets that provide a better balance between roadway users. At the same time, many of these pilots highlighted real conflicts that need to be thought through more thoroughly if they are going to transition to permanent solutions. The session provided advice for those looking to transition from tactical to practical implementation of complete streets.

Panelists:

  • Mike Lydon, Principal, Street Plans
  • Betsy Mastaglio, Manager, Office of Transit, Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning, Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission
  • Courtenay D. Mercer, Executive Director, Downtown New Jersey
  • Bob Noland, Director of the Voorhees Transportation Center, Director of the PhD program in Planning and Public Policy, and Distinguished Professor at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy
