Next Webinar - Shifting Away From Car Culture Neighboring the Motor City

Wednesday, June 12 at 3:00 p.m. EDT

Developing a Vision Zero Action Plan is just the first step towards improving safety. After the plan is completed, your team gets busy! This presentation will discuss how to translate planning into action in Ann Arbor, MI. Just an hour outside the Motor City, Ann Arbor is recognizable to cities around the country who were developed with car culture at its core, but are now working to create a safe, multimodal transportation environment. We will highlight Vision Zero implementation, discussing how safety goals are being achieved through ongoing efforts. Ann Arbor's Vision Zero implementation efforts are driven by short, medium, and long-term strategies that reimagine the transportation network, create an environment where people feel confident and comfortable traveling, and strive to be carbon neutral from the transportation system by 2030. Current initiatives to improve safety include a street ownership transfer study, bike parking pilot program, TDM program collaboration, and project coordination on all capital projects. This focus on implementation has also led the City to apply and receive a 2022 Safe Streets for All, Action Planning Grant from the Federal Highway Administration. These funds will support the deployment of the speed management program and quick build projects across the city.


APBP Project Spotlight:
Market Trail

The Market Trail is a AAA, shared-use “Rail with Trail” project along the Region-owned rail corridor from Northfield ION LRT station in Waterloo to the Market District in Woolwich. Market Trail features lighting, benches, and bike racks with space for a future bike and scooter share program. To support workers, residents, and visitors, the Region built access ramps to connect employers to the trail. The trail is winter-maintained to support use and access to transit year-round.
