Quick-Build Guide + Webinar

The California Bicycle Coalition (CalBike) and Alta are excited to share this Quick-Build Guide and webinar presentation for quickly and inexpensively creating safe spaces on our streets for people to travel by bike, on foot, on a scooter, by skateboard, or by any other low-impact, low-cost mode of transportation. Making these options available right away is key to our equitable recovery from the economic collapse caused by the pandemic and our ongoing resilience in the face of climate change. The quick-build method meets the urgency of the moment and the challenge of reduced public budgets. It provides an opportunity to engage residents more inclusively and effectively than is possible with traditional methods. Quick-build safety infrastructure can help to repair neighborhoods impacted by decades of disinvestment.

In a follow-up to the guide, we have brought together a panel of municipal staff from four cities in North America who have worked directly on quick-build projects this year. Hear from them as they share experiences delivering these projects, from consensus building across agencies to material selection to community engagement in our Alta Innovation Series webinar, “Delivering Quick-Build Projects: Four Cities Share Stories of Doing More with Less.”
