“Quick-build” projects allow cities and counties to quickly create safe lanes of traffic for people who are traveling by bike, by foot, by wheelchair, scooter or similar non-vehicle mode. Giving people safe, active transportation options helps to cut down on vehicle pollution.
Unlike long-term capital improvement projects, quick-build implementation timelines are shorter and may include demonstration projects (days to months), pilot projects (months-years) and interim design (1-2 years).
Design testing, flexibility and prototyping are built into the quick-build process so that the improvements are iterative in nature, adjustable and can accommodate community needs.
