Oakland Slow Streets Interim Findings Report, September 2020

With a few months of Oakland Slow Streets in the ground, OakDOT has taken a step back to critically evaluate how the more than 20 miles of Slow Streets Corridors and 15 Slow Streets Essential Places safety improvements are and aren't working across the City, with special attention given to the realities of Oakland's inequitable distribution of resources and opportunities, and the disproportionate effects of COVID-19 on Oakland's Latinx and Black communities. This Interim Findings Report shares OakDOT's successes and challenges with the two goals of: 1) evaluating and stabilizing the Slow Streets Program for the duration of the pandemic; and 2) gleaning insights to inform post-pandemic planning that advances safe and more livable streets that support a healthy, thriving communities and a more equitable Oakland.
