The City of Madison is launching several new initiatives to assist community members in having safe, healthy spaces for walking and cycling during the COVID-19 Safer at Home order. Some initial locations designated as “shared streets” have already been signed by city workers. These street closures will widen the distance for pedestrians and cyclists to safely travel with enough physical distancing. People with destinations along these shared streets such as residents, delivery providers, emergency service personnel and city services will continue to have vehicle access. These initiatives intend to expand space and make physical distancing easier for residents walking and cycling.
