The 'Providence Slow Streets' pilot program will limit through-traffic on 13 miles of city streets to create more space for residents to walk, run, and bicycle while maintaining physical distancing. Emergency vehicles, residents who live on the street, and vehicles that require access for essential services like trash and recycling pick up or deliveries will still have access. A 10 mph speed limit will be posted, with daily monitoring by community volunteers. The Department of Public Works will install signs and temporary barricades along designated streets to divert and slow down traffic. Along with signage, the city will work closely with residents, park volunteers and businesses within the corridors to build awareness and promote best practices.
