Street Supplies: A Library for Temporary Transportation Projects
Street Supplies is NOACA’s newest program designed to help communities in Northeast Ohio discover innovative approaches to road design for everyone: buses, bikes, cars, and pedestrians! Our library of roadway materials is FREE for communities to borrow and return. Our library include a range of materials- from the basics of paint, tape, cones, and signs to parklets, bike racks, colorful street furniture, and planters!
By using Street Supplies materials for a temporary project, jurisdictions in Northeast Ohio can gather meaningful public input on a proposed design, evaluate the potential benefits of a transportation project before its permanent construction, and enliven public spaces while improving safety for all modes..
Street Supplies is funded by a grant from the Ohio Department of Transportation and the Ohio Department of Health. The kickoff to the program was a public workshop held in March 2018, where we learned about possible community projects and shared resources to help communities develop strong project ideas. We’re off to a strong start for 2019, and encourage any communities interested in using the Street Supplies library to contact us at BikePed@mpo.noaca.org or by phone (216) 241-2414!
NOACA and the Cleveland chapter of the American Planning Association are teaming up for an educational event on Thursday, February 21st at 5:30pm titled What’s Up With Pop-Ups? Check out this flyer for more information.
