Transportation Tuesday: The Future of the Curb – How Curb Management Strategies are Changing and Who’s Leading the Charge
While managing curb space in cities has always been a challenge, the COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated the need for improved planning for the curb as increased deliveries compete with other uses. Curbside management seeks to inventory, optimize, allocate, and manage curb space to maximize mobility, safety, and access for a wide variety of curb demands. Working with the City of Chicago, the RTA is currently embarking on its first Curb Management Plan in the Kimball Brown Line station area. The City’s project manager and a business owner from the plan area will weigh in on the challenges and opportunities they’ve experienced throughout the process. Nationwide experts will also provide insights on what good curb planning involves in this time of rapid change.
