Can Shared Streets Pave the Way for Equity?
Friday, November 13, 2020 at 9:30 am
In Massachusetts, the widely-praised Shared Streets and Spaces grant program has dispersed $10.2 million for 103 tactical projects to cities across the Commonwealth in a record 100 days.
Join GBH transit reporter Bob Seay and MassINC fellow Dr. Tracy Corley as we take a closer look at “Shared Streets” in Massachusetts and in other communities across the country.
Are shared streets sustainable? Which cities are taking advantage of them – and why? And how effective are they at creating equitable access to public spaces for communities of color?
Bob and Tracy welcome Kate Fichter, Assistant Secretary for Policy Coordination for MassDOT, Warren Logan, Policy Director of Mobility and Inter Agency Relations for the City of Oakland, CA, and David Kucharsky, Director of Traffic and Parking Director for the City of Salem to discuss the successes and challenges of Shared Streets, Slow Streets, and related projects that aim to improve transportation access and connections for all.
