Smart Growth: Reclaiming the Streets

Reclaiming street space dedicated to motorized traffic can open and expand opportunities to alternative transportation methods while simultaneously improving safety and extending mobility without having significant negative ramifications on traffic flow. Everyone wins. Find the full article here.
