“Improved safety and congestion relief on public roadways are high-priority national goals. Innovative reconfigurations such as Road Diets can help achieve these goals for motorists and non-motorists on mixed-use streets by reducing vehicle speeds and freeing space for alternative modes. Road diets can reduce collisions, increase mobility and access, and improve a community’s quality of life. Road Diets are a safety-focused alternative to a four-lane, undivided roadway.”
This FHWA website provides resources, case studies, tools, webinars, and articles on road diets.
