Po-Up Complete Streets 2018

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.


Bike Lane Tactical Refreshes and Buffalo Public School Crosswalks

In 2018, we amped up our projects to a more ambitious volume and breadth of projects that spanned the entire City of Buffalo and included Niagara Falls. We streamlined our crosswalk painting process and secured stencils made and donated by Rigidized Metals. We also move towards conducting all tactical pop-ups by bike to the greatest extent possible.

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.
