Slow Streets NWA is a program created in response to the increased need for more outdoor space and use of NWA trails, sidewalks, and parks during the COVID 19 pandemic. The program's goal is to make neighborhood streets safer to walk and bike, especially in areas with fewer sidewalks, allowing for optimal social distancing.
In April 2020, BikeNWA
encouraged NWA officials for additional solutions to make social distancing outdoors easier and safer. Slow Streets Bentonville launched in April and has now expanded to Fayetteville and Rogers. Slow Streets is planning to return in May of 2020.
