Pop-Up Complete Streets 2017

Communities Building Safer Streets

Pop-up complete streets projects are temporary street treatments that provide community members and decision-makers with a tangible visualization of how walking, bicycling, and public transit facilities can create safer, more engaging streets.


Our First Year: Fillmore Avenue Road Diet and Crosswalks at Schools

In our first year applying pop-up complete streets, GObike set an ambitious goal of executing a road diet in Martin Luther King Park, adding bike lanes and community-painted bike lanes on the four-lane, park-intersecting Fillmore Avenue and painted crosswalks at several community schools in Buffalo and Niagara Falls.

Project Benefits


Pop-up projects provide connectivity between neighborhoods, parks and greenspaces, and business districts, allowing residents to safely meet their needs.


Crosswalks and curb bump-outs encourage walking by making it safer for people to do so. They enhance our transportation network by creating increased access for pedestrians.


Pop-up complete streets slow down motor vehicle traffic thus improving safety for pedestrians.
