The world looks very different a year into a once-in-a-century global pandemic. During a time of lockdowns and social distancing, Utahns took advantage of the time away from the office to bike and walk more. Bike lanes, sidewalks and trails became a preferred method for getting around. The number of cars on the road dropped dramatically and bike sales soared. A couple cities even closed some of their streets to vehicular traffic temporarily to accommodate this increase in active transportation demand.
As the COVID-19 vaccine becomes more widely available and a post-pandemic “new normal” begins, there is an opportunity to take advantage of the lessons learned during the past year to improve biking and walking in our communities.
This webinar will explore tangible recommendations from cities both on and off the Wasatch Front that are actively working to make biking and walking an important part of their new normal. It will also highlight the efforts by the Utah Department of Transportation to support cities and counties across the state in active transportation planning and implementation.
