The future of Slow Streets is in the hands of the citizens of Northwest Arkansas

  • Info - "Slow Streets are residential neighborhood streets that are temporarily signed to slow traffic to facilitate safe space for walking, biking, and children playing in these areas. The streets are accessible to residents, delivery, and service vehicles. The intent is to help people stay healthy while remaining close to their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic. At least 50 cities in the U.S. have implemented some version of Slow Streets in response to COVID-19 and social distancing guidelines." - speak up Fayetteville
