on new Healthy Streets
A number of new streets are being proposed for phase two of Austin Transportation's Healthy Streets Initiative.
Feedback is encouraged via an interactive MAP, bit.ly/3eOFzkN, and initial selection of streets will be made soon. Additional streets will be identified, reviewed, selected and implemented on a monthly basis thereafter.
At the direction of the City Council, the Transportation Department is implementing the Healthy Streets Initiative to support appropriate physical distancing while using city streets for walking and bicycling for health and wellness as well as to access jobs and services under COVID-19 risk-based guidelines.
Healthy Streets are neighborhood streets that are opened up for walking and bicycling by implementing temporary traffic control devices. These devices may include signage, traffic cones and barricades which limit motor vehicle traffic to residents, their guests and other services, including emergency services.
