Demonstration Projects

Demonstration projects are short term, low cost, temporary roadway projects to promote and advance walking. Many projects can be demonstration projects, such as crosswalk markings, curb extensions, and median safety islands. Long term changes use more durable materials, such as new concrete curb. In the short term, demonstration projects use low cost and easily available materials to quickly enhance a street and/or intersection.
