Slow Streets Pilot Program

The Village's slow streets pilot program has concluded. 

The pilot program was in effect from early August to Oct. 16, 2020. More information is listed below:


The Village's slow streets program was intended to reduce vehicle traffic and speeds on a small number of side streets to allow space for people to bike, walk, and roll safely while also observing social distancing protocols.

Portions of Van Buren Street, Kenilworth Avenue, Harvey Avenue and Thomas Street - roughly five miles of roadway - were selected to serve as corridors where signage and barricades are used to minimize vehicle through traffic and prioritize activities such as walking, jogging, biking, rollerblading and wheelchair rolling.
